Duck hunters know exactly the right sort of decoy to use in order to attract specific kinds of waterfowl and it's possible to do something similar with wine. If we want to attract curious fans of contemporary 'natural' wines to our watering hole, there's no more effective decoy than the pale and slightly hazy colour of an organic, amphora-aged Chilean Pais. 

When it comes to 'natural' wines, we see our role as that of the child in the famous tale who told the emperor he was naked. We're not saying that the emperor doesn't have a splendid wardrobe, he most assuredly does, we're just saying that we'll let him know if he's starkers, because a lot of 'natural' wines are transparently awful. This isn't one of them. It's a fabulous expression of Chile's most exciting grape variety, Pais, which is now on every hip sommelier's wine list. There's an abundance of earthy strawberry aromas that follow through onto the lightweight palate, but it's not thin or sour, there's plenty of succulence and charming hints of rosehip and rhubarb on the finish. 11.7% alc.
