This wine is a collaboration between Chilean producer Julio Bouchon and South African winemaker David Nieuwoudt. Longaví, meaning ‘snake’s head’, draws on the spirit and legends of two continents. The vine wreath denoting the ouroboros, an ancient African symbol, represents nature's eternal cycle of renewal. The sacred condor soaring high above the Andes - man's messenger to the gods - represents the winemaker's freedom and search for perfection. Longavi wines will certainly please both man and the gods.

From premium selected vineyards in the Valley of Marchigue. A true expression terroir with a breathtaking intensity and richness.

Oxidative style, the juice ferment with their skin in "Amphora", without control temperature; fermentation is completed remains with their skin for 2 months and 6 months with the lees. Without stabilization, finning and no filtration.

The current vintage has yet to be tasted, the tasting notes below are from the previous vintage: 'One of the few varietals in the country, the 2017 Chenin Blanc Glup was produced with grapes grown in Marchigüe in Colchagua on volcanic soils. It fermented in clay amphorae with skins and natural yeasts for two months. It was kept in amphorae for six months. It was bottled unfiltered and is a little cloudy, with character, a bit wild, with some varietal character. It lacks a bit of vibrancy, but it's a very good first effort. 800 bottles were filled in October 2017.' – Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, 88/100
