Leonardo Erazo - La Ruptura

LEONARDO ERAZO

La Ruptura reflects the stubborn persistence of Itata’s old vineyards and their vignerons. Against all odds they have survived the test of time. We have the joy of working with grapes from our own old bushvine vineyards. La Ruptura comes from a single 4 acre plot. Grapes have been grown here in this coastal region for centuries, and this plot has original plantings of 170 year old moscatel. The wine has a great concentration with beautiful floral and white peach muscat aromas but it is incredibly energetic on the palate with mouth-watering acidity and mineral salinity. Tiny quantities produced.
