A respected terroir consultant, Pedro Parra takes inspiration from regions like Galicia that produce high-end, terroir-driven wine despite being considered climatically marginal for grape-growing. Parra, who hails from Chile's southern port city, Concepción, applies these ideas to Chile's oldest regions under vine. A field blend sourced from rustic vineyards, Parra's "Imaginador" is comprised of Cinsault as well as small quantities of Carignan, País, and even Muscat and Sémillon. Red fruit gives way to chalky tannins informed by the vineyards' granite soils.
