Pale pink color highlighting the fine, persistent mousse. Fruity notes (red and citrus fruits) predominate on the nose, while the wine’s fresh, wild character on the palate is typical of the age-old País variety.

3 STARS (EXCEPTIONAL)
País is the Chilean name for the mission grape, brought to the New World by Spanish missionaries and colonists in the mid-1500s. Recent DNA analysis identified it as listán prieto, an old Spanish variety.

So it is perhaps fitting that this delightful, refreshing sparkling rosé is made by the Chilean outpost of Spain’s famous Torres winery. Bright flavors of red berries and wild herbs seem to carry history with them.

Here’s an opportunity to taste wine from the first European vinifera grape variety planted in the Western Hemisphere. Forgive me, but all I am saying is give país a chance. Certified vegan and fair trade. ABV: 12 percent.

91pts James Suckling– N/V vintage

This is a very fresh and delicious rosé, made from the local país grape variety, showing strawberries, peaches and citrus. Medium-bodied, some fine bubbles and a tangy finish. Drink now.

91pts Decanter– N/V vintage

If you are looking for a fairly traded sparkling wine in the world, there aren’t very many.  Estalado is a rarity that ticks all the boxes: traditional method (12 months on lees); and ancestral variety, Pais; an alluring rose colour. 

It’s refreshing (7g/L residual sugar) with lively citrus and red fruit notes.  Good value too.  Well worth seeking out.  Drinking window 2020-2022
