Ignacio Recabarren

Ignacio Recabarren is, in our view, Chile’s greatest winemaker. He makes beautifully balanced wines in a European style by picking ripe yet fresh grapes, spending a lot of time in the vineyard tasting grapes to choose the perfect moment to harvest. Thereafter he prefers to let the character of the vineyard shine through and has a light hand on extraction and oak flavour in the cellar.

He has a vast knowledge and experience of winemaking, both abroad, in places as diverse as Château Margaux (Bordeaux), Cloudy Bay and Matua Valley (New Zealand), and at home in all the valleys of Chile. He was a pioneer of the cool Casablanca Valley and his experience in New Zealand made him an early leader in the field of sauvignon blanc.

His wines come from one of the coolest parts of the Casablanca in the south-west of the valley. He has chosen established hillside vineyards planted on red clay which produce a high quality crop of low yields. His transparent winemaking style aims to translate the maximum quality of the grapes into the finished wine with minimum cellar technique.

Lots of green veginess and bone dry on the end. Quite austere. Not that long. But it may evolve interestingly?
