Pinot Noir 2020
This wine, of a bright and clean cherry colour, shows a captivating purity and freshness in the nose, with aromas of sour cherry, rosehip and subtle earthy notes. In the palate, it surprises with mellow bloody and saline nuances, typical from this terroir. It has a delicate structure, great balance and fine tannins; finishing with a fresh and savoury mouth feel.
From the Chilhué Vineyard on the Aconcagua Costa Estate, highly influenced by the cold Pacific Ocean breezes.
A very challenging 2020 season, presenting the driest winter of the last 50 years. The vineyards in the Aconcagua Region had to endure an intense hydric marathon to accomplish ripeness. Warm temperatures, especially in springtime, ended the season with a slightly colder March and April. Moderate crop yield and abundant irrigation in summer helped maintain the freshness and quality of the vines.
The fruit was fermented in stainless steel tanks from 10 to 18 days at temperatures that fluctuated between 25°-28°C. Aged for 11 months in French barrels, of which 15% were new.
