Escandalo began in 2013 as a project to highlight old, abandoned vineyards (60-200yo) around Colchagua, Itata, Maule, and beyond. Mauricio searches out these old plots & the work in the vineyards remains extremely traditional with no chemicals used in the vines (only organic treatments or plant and citrus extracts the farmers have used for generations) and all harvesting is done by hand.
Maricio's Pipeño is made from 50% País and 50% Cinsault, made in the traditional Chilean fashion: minimal intervention in the vineyard and winery; a wine to drink young; and one that displays amazing freshness and drinkability with flavors of berries, black pepper and rocks. Absolutely delicious and extremely glou-glou! 11-14% ABV
