Made from one of the greatest vineyards in the appellation of Bío-Bío, the San Rosendo Centenary Malbec, a recently discovered parcel of 140 year-old vines. 'El Perseguidor' is the culmination of winemaker Juan Ledesma’s vineyard and cellar work under the label Terroir Sonoro: these ancient Malbec vines were found growing in a high-altitude vineyard, mixed amongst País vines, on granitic soil with quartz and schist—the plot was previously used to make inexpensive Pipeno. Ironically, the grapes had been discarded for being too dense in color and too aromatic (!). Juan Ledesma is one of only three producers making wine on this remarkable heritage, eight-hectare site. Not to be missed: natural, robust, profound.
