Pedro's Imaginador is produced with 100% old vine Cinsault from three dry-farmed vineyards in Guarilihue and Florida. It has a really fresh, floral nose with aromas of acid strawberries, a touch of raspberry leaves and plenty of red juicy fruit such as watermelon and pomegranate... It's very drinkable and fresh, with unnoticeable tannins.

The 2018 Imaginador is made with Cinsault from five old vineyards in the village of Guarilihue in Itata from a dry year. It fermented with 30% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and had a long maceration after the fermentation finished. The élevage was in a mixture of 2,550-liter oak foudres and 3,000-liter concrete vats and lasted 10 to 11 months. The wine is only 12.5% alcohol and has a mineral, fresh and vertical personality with good grip and structure. It has a serious and somewhat austere personality along with depth and complexity and is nicely textured in a reductive/flinty Comando G style. It's all about texture and mouthfeel, with very good freshness, really superb. 13,965 bottles were filled in March 2019.
