Roberto Henriquez’s vineyards were personally and carefully selected. Working with long term fermage agreements, he farms all the land himself. To the north, in Itata, he is working with a vineyard of old vine Semillon and blends that with Corinto (aka Chasselas) and Muscat d’Alejandria producing an orange style wine. A little further south, in Bío Bío, he is farming Pais, from which he makes the Pipeño and the Santa Cruz de Coya. He works with carbonic macerations and ages in old Rauli wood barrels. His wines are light-bodied, translucent, refined, and full of character.
Notro, interestingly, is a tree in this part of Chile. This is a natural white wine with amazing but refined aromatics. Hints of pepper, fennel and pear. Pure, clean and dry.
