Pedro Parra y Familia "Imaginador" Itata Valley Cinsault 2015

90 Our Score
(2/2017) Pedro Parra is a master of terroir, dedicating his life to trying to understand what drives it. After having traveled and worked throughout much of the rest of the world he returned to his native Chile because he believed that it, and more specifically the Itata region to the far South, has some of the most expressive and dynamic terroir in all of Chile. The "Imaginador" bottling is labeled as Cinsault from various blocks planted over 200 years ago; with the average vine age is between 71 and 110 years old. Much like old vine Zinfandel plots in California, this site is not entirely Cinsault. There is a smattering of other grapes interspersed throughout, such as Muscat, Semillon, Carignan and Pais. The wine beautifully displays the intense mineral and rocky characteristics of the volcanic soil, with plenty of lift and freshness to the spicy berry-tinged palate. A great glimpse into how wine has been traditionally done in this region for hundreds of years.
