WHY BE CURIOUS: Crafted from a premium selected vineyard parcel in the Valley of Itata. A true expression of terroir with breathtaking intensity and elegance.
Pairing Ideas: A pure expression of the terroir, coming from soils with granite bases. Light red, with notes of red fruit and wild herbs. Polished tannins with good acidity bring freshness and a long finish. Delightful with escargot, stews, smoked salmon bites, braised or roasted meats, Moroccan lamb, and grilled vegetables.
About the winemaker: This wine is a collaboration between two winemakers – Julio Bouchon of Chile and David Nieuwoudt of South Africa. Longaví, meaning ‘snake’s head’, draws on the spirit and legends of two continents. The vine wreath depicted in the logo, denotes the ouroboros, an ancient African symbol representing nature’s eternal renewal cycle. The condor soaring high above the Andes represents freedom and the search for perfection. This sacred bird is believed to be man’s messenger to the gods. Longaví wines will undoubtedly please both man and the gods!
