Description

94 points Wine Advocate
"There is a new País from a vineyard planted in 1895 that he rents in Ñipas on black basalt soil, first produced in 2020 but I tasted the 2021 Soulpit. It fermented in concrete with 60% stems for 18 days and with a 30-day maceration. It matured in oak vat for 11 months. País does not deliver high alcohol, and this is only 12.5%. It has a mixture of flowers, cherries in liqueur, aromatic herbs and brick dust, a mixture of the Comando G and Rayas styles and characters. It has more generous tannins, not as tight as the ones from granite. Apparently, there's an even better País that I should taste one of these days soon... 2,562 bottles were filled in February 2022."

93 points James Suckling
"Bright , ethereal and characterful, full of wild raspberries, anise, white pepper funk, tiger balm and licorice. Tight and slightly chewy tannins give it a somewhat austere feel, if not a little rustic, too. That said, there is a lot to like on the palate, showing the attractive agility and super tanginess and assertiveness of a good pais. Very old vines from silty basaltic soils. Enjoy now."

Jancis Robinson
"País. Smoke, volcanic with a red-fruit note, rose hip and spice. The tannins are vertical – dense and very concentrated, a smoky note with spice and a violet note. Crushed violets, cranberry and such tension. 17.5/20 points. (AC)"

Vinous Reverie Notes
País. Sourced from Nipas, Itata. Parra’s first Cru from a vineyard planted in 1895 on silty black decomposed basalt, which is similar to the soils found on Etna. Fermented with indigenous yeast for 18 days and aged for 11 months in oak vat.
