K&L Notes

De Martino has arguably undergone one of the more radical transformations the wine world has seen in the past five years. The second largest owner of organic vineyards in Chile, with 740 acres in production, De Martino is stepping up to the plate in other ways as well: the winery is 100% carbon neutral and beginning in 2011 they have stopped purchasing new oak barrels. That year they purchased 140 tinajas, the traditional Chilean clay vessels that resemble amphoras, in varying shapes and sizes. They also invested in 5000l Austrian (Stockinger) foudres and continue to seek out Chilean foudres made from the indigenous oak known locally as "raulí." Cinsault is a historic grape variety in Chile's Itata Valley, a beautiful but relatively poor agricultural region in Chile's region VIII, nestled amongst the granitic coastal range and enjoying sufficient rainfall to allow for dry farming. This wine is pretty, purely cherry fruited, floral, with a light and firm structure. It more than compensates for its light body with ample acidity, floral tones and a crisp, quaffable quality.
