Tierra de Pumas is a vineyard in the Santa Juana zone, on the southern bank of the Bío Bío River at the foot of the Nahuelbuta Range. Roberto Henríquez bought this 2.5-hectare vineyard of old vines in 2018. Some, like these país vines, have been there for more than 200 years. The vineyard soils are granitic, especially higher up. This first vintage, however, is a mixture of different vineyards, a kind of synopsis of this terroir. And it’s an enthusiastic synopsis. There’s red fruit, earthy notes, and delicate texture, like the best of Henríquez’ país. A warm-up that shows the potential of this as-yet unexplored place.
These vines are 2 kilometers inland from the Bío Bío river. The granitic soil has its origins in the volcanic activity that defined the costal range called Cordillera de Nahuelbuta, which translates to “Cougar’s Land,” or Tierra de Pumas in Spanish. The wine itself is appropriately named due with its complex, fruity and meaty character.
Very soft tannins The Pais grape has been around for centuries, still unknown but everyone should try it.
