Rogue Vine "Grand Itata" Blanco - 2022

Item # 39005 750mL

Far from your typical Chilean wine, this aromatic white blend is made from old vines of Moscatel, Riesling and Chasselas. The wine is dry and lean yet has honeyed fruit on the palate, chappy minerality and a slight tannic grip. The wine macerates on the skin for two days and is fermented with native yeast and aged in neutral barrel.

Staff Pick Notes

A collaboration between Chilean winemaker Leo Erazo and Indiana born Justin Decker, the Rogue Vine Grand Itata Blanco is a unique, fragrant treat. Sporting a beautiful golden color and enticing notes of lychee and stone fruit, its a very pretty wine that I enjoyed even more than I expected. Most Chilean white wines I've had have either been Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc, but this blend of Moscatel, Riesling, and Sémillon is a welcome change of pace. The grapes are grown from old vines and are hand harvested with minimal intervention or use of sulphur. Located outside of the city of Concepción (about 300 miles south of Santiago), the terroir's granite-laden soils give this wine a nice rocky minerality to balance out the floral nose. A lovely aromatic white wine that will taste great alongside some pad thai or a little summertime ceviche.

Glossary

Chile

Chilean winemakers are known for opening their arms to forgotten European grape varieties, nursing them back to health, and then releasing them back to the rest of the world - and we can’t thank them enough for it. Chile’s friendly, delicious Carmenères are the best example, but Chile is generally one of the most consistent sources of delicious, ready-to-drink, approachable wines. Cabernet Sauvignons from Chile are just as crowd-pleasing as the Carmenères, and keep an eye out for velvety,...

Though it's now cultivated worldwide, Riesling is nearly synonymous with German wine, and that country's winemakers have lately begun to produce some very exciting dry versions. They are careful to retain the delightful honeyed, flinty flavors that the best sweet Rieslings have always displayed. Alsace, of...

Chasselas

A white grape grown all over the world, including Alsace, the Loire, Germany, Austria, Hungary, and Italy. The best Chasselas wines, however, are produced in Switzerland, where the grape is called Fendant and is the most widely planted variety in the country. When made well, Chasselas is soft, welcoming and easy to drink.

Blanco

White tequila, an official type (tipo) for tequila bottled fresh from the still, or allowed to rest in stainless steel tanks for up to sixty days before bottling. It is never aged in wooden barrels. Also known as plata, plato, and silver tequila. Usually the most robust, strong-flavoured of the tequila types.
