If you know Elqui, than this funky wine's murky, stewy, muddy aromas won't come as a shock. In the mouth, this is soft and mushy, with little to no noticeable acidity. Flavors of burnt leaves and stalky berry fruits offer minimal punch, while the finish tastes stewy and rooty, which is nothing unusual for northerly Elqui.
