Pais Viejo (‘Old Pais’) is a wine with history. Made with Pais grapes from over 100-year-old Gobelet vines planted in the dry-farmed, coastal region of Maule.
Bright cherry color. A very juicy, fresh, light and honest wine with aromas of strawberry, wildflowers and sour cherry.
Pairs well with fish and pasta, however can also be used as an aperitif.

I also tasted the very recently bottled 2018 País Viejo, a wine with great purity and complexity from a better year. Winemaker Christian Sepúlveda told me the year is the best in the region—together with 2013, a year when yields were key. In this 2018 they only used grapes from suppliers, as their own were used for another wine. Fresh, effervescent, juicy, really pleasant to drink. At this price, this is a steal. In 2018 they did some 25,000 bottles, so they managed to increase volume and quality.Wine Advocate October 2018
Fresh raspberries, cranberries, citrus and orange peel with some fresh-herb undertones. Light body, fine tannins, lovely, bright acidity and a fruity finish. Drink now.James Suckling April 2019
