Roberto Henríquez is a real champion of the old vines of Bío-Bío and Itata. This 90-year-old block of a Semillon field blend makes a wonderfully complex and textural wine. With notes of wild herbs, white fruit and fennel, it is savory in character with a mineral, grippy finish. A key part of Chile’s lo-fi movement in the south.

Molino del Ciego shows spicy, herbal notes that frame aromas of pear and apple. Somewhere between fennel, star anise, and poblano pepper, the nose is remarkable and fascinating. The fruit character and herbal spice continues on the palate, intermingling with vibrant, cooling and broad granitic minerality for a very long, appealing finish. A fascinating bottle, and a radically different expression of Semillon.

Orange Wine

Orange wine is a type of white wine that is made using a traditional method that is more commonly associated with red wine production. The grapes used to make orange wine are white wine grapes, but the juice is fermented with the skins, seeds, and stems for a longer period of time than is typical for white wine, often several weeks to several months. This extended skin contact gives the wine its distinctive orange color, as well as a fuller body and a range of flavors and aromas that are not found in traditional white wines. Orange wine is typically dry and can have a slightly tannic, rustic quality, with notes of stone fruit, nuts, and honey. It is sometimes described as having a "skin-fermented" flavor profile and is prized by some wine enthusiasts for its unique and complex taste. Orange wine is produced in limited quantities and can be more challenging to find than other types of wine.
