Louis-Antoine Luyt continues to be a huge international advocate for Chile's singular old-vine peasant wines. In Chile, he has also continued to build relationships with the grape growers and farmers who have maintained local customs and traditions, including paying them increasingly higher rates for their fruit. 

'Gorda Blanca' is a blend of Moscatel de Alexandria, Torontel, Corinto (aka Chasselas) and Cristalina (aka Semillon) from the village of Guarilihue in the Bío Bío region. The vines are from a 250 year-old single vineyard on granite and red clay that is ungrafted and not irrigated. You'd think that 12 days of skin contact, zero sulfur, and nearly four years in bottle would make this pretty freaky, but it's still plenty refreshing and tasty. Slightly smoky lychee is met with stony texture and savory summer squash notes. Lower acid, but it's lifted up by a nice bite of citrus and orange juice on the finish. Jonathan Kemp
