Winemaking Notes: Rogue Vine's 'Grand Itata Tinto' is a blend of old vine Cinsault and Pais. The grapes are sourced from the La Bella Vineyard that was planted in 1960. The bush vines are harvested by hand and then whole berry fermented with native yeast. Maturation occurs in 10-year-old neutral oak.

Tasting Notes: The nose shows bright red fruits of raspberry and strawberry with rose petals and hints of fresh forest floor. The palate is defined by its tannin and acid structure that keeps the wine lifted accentuating the fruit and leading to a racy finish.

    The nose of the 2021 Grand Itata screams Cinsault from Guarilihue with those bright aromas of translucent red berries, aromatic herbs and exotic spices (nutmeg and cola nut). This has good ripeness, 13% alcohol, very good definition and clarity and is expressive of the granite soils. This wine is textbook for the variety and place. It's a great value too.
