95% País/5% Cargadora (aka Cinsault). The País comes from organic, dry-farmed bush vines around 250 years old, on decomposed granite soils that Luyt likens to the Côte du Py of Morgon, high in the hills of the Portezuelo sub-zone of the small Itata region. Portezuelo is the lightest-bodied and least tannic of the Luyt pipeños. It is popping with ripe, crunchy red cherry up front with a hint of cranberry on the finish. Light, bright, juicy, and rustic (reminiscent of Gamay).
