Wine Description:
Clos des Fous Pour Ma Gueule (Assemblage Itata) is a unique and complex wine produced by Clos des Fous, a renowned Chilean winery. The grapes are sourced from the Itata Valley, an appellation known for its old vines and granite soils. The vineyard features dry-farmed, bush-trained vines that are over 60 years old, resulting in low yields and concentrated flavors. The winemaking process involves a blend of traditional and modern techniques, including whole-cluster fermentation and aging in concrete eggs. The resulting wine is a medium-bodied red with a vibrant acidity and a complex flavor profile of red fruit, herbs, and earthy notes. It is a perfect representation of the terroir and the winemaker's philosophy of minimal intervention. Read more

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
