There is a new single-vineyard Cinsault the 2019 Newk named for Sonny Rollins Newk. Parra describes him as the wildest jazz musician of recent times so he named this wine for him as he finds it to be wild full of energy and minerality. It was produced with grapes from an old vineyard in Guarilihue that is worked by horse from vines planted on decomposed and rocky granite soils with some iron and a sandy and silty texture. The grapes fermented with 100% full clusters after four or five days with native yeasts and a total maceration time of 51 days then the wine matured in an oak vat for 10 months. It has 13.5% alcohol and is austere and sharp mineral and stony. This is the sharpest of the crus with elegance perfume nuance and detail a little wilder than the Miles?different but at a similar quality level. Only 840 bottles were filled in February 2020 and the wine was made without any chemicals. This together with Miles is in Parra's grand cru category. I preferred the nose of Miles and the palate from Newk. This is wild and radical.
