Macatho - Chacha - Itata Valley, Chile

Macatho - Chacha - Itata Valley, Chile

Producer Profile
Macarena del Río and Thomas Parayre founded Macatho in 2016 after meeting while working a harvest together. Based in Chillán, they currently farm old-vine parcels of land organically in Maule, Bío-Bío and Itata. Chile’s dry conditions, abundant sunshine, and cooling conditions of the Pacific make working organically a somewhat simpler endeavor than in other parts of the world. In the cellar, all work is done manually and by gravity - no additives are used, save for a dash of sulfur at bottling.

Tasting Notes
Pronounced mango, lychee, melon, and other tropical fruits. Highly herbaceous with white pepper and something quite like movie theater popcorn (heavily buttered). Lower acidity for an orange wine, low tannin, and a deep, long finish.

Pairing Suggestions
Wide spread of charcuterie with aged cheeses (cheddar, goat) and flavorful cured meats. The vibrancy of some funky cheeses will play well off of this unique and wild skin-contact wine.
