Description

Miguel Torres La Causa Pais Gran Reserva is a red wine made from 100% Pais grapes sourced from the Valle del Itata in the Secano Interior.

Miguel Torres have had operations in Chile since 1979 when the company acquired a small wine in Curico in the Chilean central valley and were one of the first foreign firms to invest in the country. Their original 100 hectares bought in 1979 has now grown, some thirty years later to 445 hectares of vineyards all owned by Torres Chile. A lot of Pais was grubbed up over the years but, even so, some 15,000 hectares remain planted. Up until now it has previously been used to make cheap wine for local consumption.

The Pais grape variety is an ancient grape variety that was originally taken to South America by the Spanish Conquistadores over 500 years ago. In Spain this variety was known as Listan Negro and later became known as Mission before being called Pais in Chile. Pais remained popular in Chile until the mid-nineteenth century when French grape varieties become prevalent. Thanks to Miguel Torres Chile, Pais is now undergoing a revival as a great grape variety for producing sparkling rosé and now this red wine. There are still some 15,000 hectares of Pais planted.

Miguel Torres La Causa Pais Gran Reserva is aged for 12 months in third use French oak.

Tasting Notes

Miguel Torres La Causa Pais Gran Reserva wild red fruit on the nose, with spice hints of great intensity. In the mouth is round, firm, with rustic tannins typical of País grapes. The end is extremely long and invites another glass.
