Cacique Maravilla - Chacoli Pét Nat Rosé (2020)
This is an undisgorged, living Pét Nat. Chill the wine upright. Clean the outside of the bottle after removing from the refrigerator. Very slowly lift the crown cap while holding the entire bottle of wine vertically over the glass. Do not entirely remove the crown cap from the bottle, just enough to let it release wine down the wine bottle and into the glass. Video instructions sent by request.
This years vintage still has some sweetness to it, which in turn has made it less explosive. Fermentation is still taking place in the bottle which will cause it to become more violent when opened down the road.

About the Winemaker:
I have the honor and privilege care for a 250-year old vineyard. I am the 7th generation of my family to make wine just as my ancestors did, using the traditional know-how of my region. We grow Pais, Moscatel de Alejandria, Torontel, Corinto (Shazela), Cot as well as Cabernet Sauvignon (planted in 2000). Dry-farmed.
