La Despensa Boutique Organic Mission Impaissable Pais 2019, Chile


Fun, light and crunchy red made from the Pais variety.

La Despensa Mission Impaissable is a light bodied, dry red wine from Valle de Colchagua, Chile. It's a 100% Pais with 14.0% abv. Suitable for Vegans. Organic.

La Despensa winery is owned and operated by the winemaker Matt Ridgway, originally from Sherborne, who moved to Chile and married his wife Ana Cattan before setting up his boutique winery. After renovating an earthquake mangled 100-year-old adobe worker’s cottage, he planted his first vines in 2013, inspired by the Rhone. Later, he found a parcel of old vine Pais, being dry farmed (only 12” rain per year) and aged it in flexitank. In the US, Pais is known as ‘Mission’, but the Colchagua authorities don’t recognise its tiny production (less than 40ha), and so they can’t label it as Mission or under Colchagua’s geographical area, hence the names “Mission:Impaissable” and “Cold Shower”, rather than Colchagua. The wine itself is small production, with less than 2,500 bottles, and very fresh in style. Lots of red berries over gentle tannins. Lovely to sip lightly chilled.

You'll like this if you like... Loire Valley Cabernet Franc, or Alsace Pinot Noir.

Pairs beautifully with: Roast chicken wrapped in bacon, grilled pork, tripe (especially liver), or breadsticks and a smoky aubergine dip.

Cheese pairing: Fosseway Fleece sheep's cheese.
