This wine is not structured, but rather it seeks to express its simplicity, delicateness, rusticity and honesty. It is born from grapes that were destined to be mixed with the rest, but its strength allowed it to shine on its own. The grape bunches were emptied whole into cement eggs. The pressing was skipped and to the sound of the music of the wild yeasts and a patient waiting time, finished their fermentation without any fuss under the care of its creator.
Despechado seeks, through its personal satisfaction, to be loved and have people come back for more.
WHAT’S BEHIND THE NAME?
Despechado means scorned—a very fitting name considering that this wine is made with grapes that some once overlooked for their small yield. Now that they have been turned into wine, however, many want them back again.
