The cult of the birdman in Rapa Nui (Easter Island) has a tradition that was intended to capture the first egg of the Manutara, a sacred migratory bird that nested on an islet in front of a large volcano on Eastern Island. The first man to get it would become the Tangata Manu ¨birdman¨, a divinity of the island.

The waiting (Espera) for the arrival of the bird was done in caves with great acoustics that allowed the natives to listen for the Manutara from a great distance. The chirping of the birds was the signal, and the beginning of the Challenge (Desafío).

The men elected by the different tribes descended from the steep cliffs of the volcano and swam to the islet, sometimes aided by woven reed rafts.

They had to wait on the island for several days until one man could find the sacred egg of the Manutara. On the way back from the islet, the chosen one who was able to bring the egg back to the King was proclaimed Tangata Manu “birdman”. This is the beginning of its Evolution (Evolución) from the human to the divine, to be revered by all the tribes of Rapa Nui until the new arrival of the Manutara on the following spring.

Tasting notes
Deep black red, in nose feels like red cherry fruitmixed with notes from custody in barrels as vanilla. The palate has smooth and round tannins with mid to high body. The lingering finish confirms cherry and mint accomplished by notes of tobacco and smoke because of the passage through barrels.

Rating
“Seductive floral and red fruit notes with cassis, raspberry and coffee aromas that yield to creamy mocha notes in the glass. The palate is lush and balanced, and therefore captures the best of what Chile offers. A very pure and well-made Cabernet Sauvignon that can be drunk now or over the next 5 years.” Wine Buyer, 93 Points
