For this Soothsayers Single Ferment, Garage used two vineyards on the granitic hills of the Coastal Range in the Guarilihue zone of western Itata Valley. Fermented with native yeasts and some stems for added grip and fruit, this is a cinsault that could be categorized among the group of “serious” wines. It has a very firm structure with penetrating acidity, and it’s fruity, although it also has slightly herbal flavors. A take on the variety whose structure and aromatic complexity puts it somewhat beyond the usual vinous version of fruit juice.

The 2021 Cinsault The Soothsayers Ferment was produced with grapes from two farms and three plots in Guarilihue Alto in Itata, within the appellation Secano Interior Coelemu, worked by horse in the old style and fermented together. “All of the fruit does not enter the tank at same time. When the second day’s picking is ready, we simply stack a part or all on top of the tank already fermenting—one single ferment” was the explanation for the name of the wine, which finished with 13% alcohol and a pH of 3.48, quite low for the grape. The wine matured in what they described as very old barrels over one winter. It’s serious, with a slightly shy nose, not as open and expressive as others, more elegant, very clean and fresh. It’s medium-bodied and with fine-grained tannins and a granite texture. 5,416 bottles were filled in February 2022.

Very bright nose full of red berries, cherries and flowers. A twist of fresh herbs. Fruity but bone-dry with succulent cherries and soft, fine tannins. Lots of drinkability here. Enjoy now.
