Fundo el Qunitanar (Pepe Moquillaza) - Quebrada de Ihuanco 2018
Producer: Fundo el Qunitanar (Pepe Moquillaza)
Wine name: Quebrada de Ihuanco
ABV: 12.8

Our main main Pepe Moquillaza makes this series of wines (which he calls “sea wines” on account of the vineyard’s proximity to the ocean) together with Camilo Quintana.

This 100% quebranta from old vines has a briney and lightly peppery character, with lean redcurrant and raspberry fruit and attractively nutty tannins. There’s a lovely lightness of touch, with a nice burst of acidity. It does seem to drop away quite fast on the finish, but there is something rather moreish about the grippy, balsamic character on the finish.
