In my search for bottling frank wines that are free to be themselves, I began clearing the equation of the various interfering factors that lay between the vineyard and the glass. In this process, I found barrels to be the ultimate homogenizer, which is why I stopped using them. In addition to providing tannins that are foreign to the grape, the oak introduces the “candy factor”, providing foreign aromas and flavors (vanilla, chocolate, coconut, etc.) to the wine that enable a path of instant satisfaction. This is at the antipodes of my artistic proposal. Las Payas wines are there to fight, to question, to take drinkers out of their comfort zone. For the “Oak Malbec Satisfaction Guaranteed Plan”, there are supermarkets full of wine.
