Pedro Parra is a renowned soil and vineyard mapping expert with a PhD in Precision Agriculture and Terroir from the Institut Agronomique National in Paris. As a consultant to many well-known wineries in the Americas and Europe, he has spent much of the past 18 years discovering new sites, digging ‘calicatas’ (pits for soil analysis) and transforming the way wineries manage their vineyards. However, he always dreamed that one day he would make his own wines in his native Itata. In 2013, assisted by consultant winemaker and long-term friend Alberto Antonini, Pedro released Itata wines under his own label. His vision was simple: to make pure wines from old bush vines grown on granitic soils and to help the local “brave vignerons”, who protected the land and vines for centuries.
Pedro’s Imaginator is dominated by Cinsault, a red variety that has its origins in the south of France and is used in Chateauneauf du Pape and Languedoc Rousillon. In Chile, it has found its home in the Itata Valley in southern Chile. Cinsault grapes for Imaginador were sourced from four vineyards in the Guarilihue sub-region of Itata. The vineyards are planted on soils composed of rocky quartzic granite. The bush vines are well over 50 years old.
The Pedro Parra Imaginador Cinsault is easy to drink and tremendously fruity. It is about deep red fruits and some earthy flavours. Very fresh with a long finish.
