Dry farmed (on about 12” of rain a year) old vine Pais aged in flexitank to ensure maximum freshness and no oak influence. The Old vine Pais is at least 120 years old, most likely 150+, and comes from one of the very few remaining old vine Pais vineyards in Colchagua. Pais is of course known as ‘Mission’ in the US, hence the name! Whilst Maule boasts 3000+ ha of old vine Pais there are barely 40ha left in Colchagua, so much so that producers aren’t allowed to declare it – hence the name ‘Cold Shower’, which sounds uncannily like ‘Colchagua’ if you’re not paying attention. It’s way ‘more’ wine than a Maule Pais. More concentration, a bit more booze, much better colour. Only 2,500 bottles produced
