Aconcagua Cuvée Pinot Noir 2020
Bright and attractive cherry red colour, this Aconcagua Cuvée Pinot Noir has a fresh and fruity nose, reminiscent of strawberries and raspberries, accompanied by attractive notes of rosehip and a soft touch of mushroom. The fruit first appears on the palate, which later gives way to elegant balsamic notes reminiscent of dill and frames by delicate notes of pastries and sweet spices. It has a good structure, juicy sensation with soft and elegant tannins.
The grapes come from selected vineyards that grow near the Pacific Ocean coast in the Aconcagua Region, on hills at an altitude of 100 to 300 meters above sea level. The gentle Pacific breeze and morning fog make these vineyards ideal for producing varieties such as Pinot Noir.
Undoubtedly 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 grapes for Aconcagua Cuvée Pinot Noir were picked, destemmed, crushed, and deposited into open-topped stainless-steel tanks for fermentation. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 9 months.
