+ GRAPES: 80% Pais, 20% Carignan. Old vine.
+ FUNDAMENTALS: Practicing organic. Hand-harvested grapes, wild yeast, partial-carbonic fermentation in cement to keep things superfresh. Light filtration and a touch of sulfur. A rarity in the additive-laden world of canned wine.
+ PROFILE: This is an honest wine. Dry, easy, light-medium body. Notes of crushed/able wild raspberry, cherries, ripe strawberry. A touch of rose petal and savory herbs. Low tannin, fresh acidity. Serve chilled.
+ PAIRINGS: Views from the East River. Lighter fare. Paella or other hearty, spiced dishes.
+ FUN FACT: This wine's namesake pipeno is named after the pipe-shaped open-top fermenters favored by Chilean farmers. The Pais grape is also known as Mission, Listan Negro, and Criolla Grande.
