Pedro Parra, Imaginador Cinsault, Itata Valley, Chile, 2018
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2021
The New World is starting to do a fine line in gluggable, unpretentious summery reds, often from old vines hitherto scorned for fine wine (at least on the label). This is an excellent example from renowned Chilean soil-consultant-turned-producer Pedro Parra. This old-vine Cinsault from southerly Itata shows aromas of red fruits, ginger and curry leaf, and a juicy, easy-going flavour profile with a nip of tannin that works well with food.
