Pais Salvaje Blanco 2016
WINE OVERVIEW

Pais Salvaje blanco is a wine born from a second wild discovery within JBouchon’s Pais ‘jungle’ vines. After their first harvest of Pais Salvaje in 2015, the 2016 harvest began and they realized that certain clusters of these wild vines were much lighter in color than others. They decided to harvest and vinify these lighter clusters separately and age the wine in an ancient tinaja (clay amphora) with native yeast with no filtration. Pais Salvaje blanco was born.

Tasting Notes

This is a wine of character. Copper yellow in color with fruity aromas of green apple and pear. In the mouth it is very juicy and fresh, with a long finish.

Food Pairing

Enjoy with grilled fish, light sauced pasta or a fresh summer salad.
