Estate Reserva Pinot Noir 2021
The wine has a beautiful ruby red colour and presents delicate aromas of red fruits such as strawberries, cherries, and plums, along with delicate touches flowers and balsamic. It is fresh and juicy on the palate, with elegant tannins and bright acidity with great persistence.
The grapes for our Estate Pinot Noir are from our vineyards in the coolclimate Aconcagua Region, planted on the northeastern slopes of Chile’s Coastal Range, less than 30 kilometres from the Pacific Ocean. The sea breezes and morning fog offer ideal conditions for cool climate varieties such as Pinot Noir.
The 2021 season began with a winter of average rains and a warm spring; however, this condition changed drastically during summer, presenting temperatures well below the historical average and numerous cloudy days. The biggest surprise came at the end of January, with abundant rainfall that set off alarms from the Central Valley to the South. On the other hand, in Aconcagua Inland, thanks to its location 85 km north of the Central Valley, rainfall was only 21 mm, which had no impact on the fruit’s health. The months of February and March were cold, and the ripening advanced slowly. During the last week of March, we had the last rays of sunlight necessary to reach the desired ripeness. The cold summer condition resulted in moderate alcohol and vibrant acidity, producing wines of excellent colour and aromatic intensity, fresh and balanced.
The grapes for our Estate Pinot Noir were picked, destemmed, crushed, and deposited into open-topped stainless-steel tanks for fermentation. 50% of the wine was later aged in French oak barrels for 6 months.
