Finding Pinot Noir of this quality at this price point is pretty rare. This is gentle and fresh with approachable summer fruit very much in evidence along with notes of dark spice and a touch of minerality. Cracking value.
Bio Bio’s higher rainfall, strong winds and broader extremes make for more challenging conditions than those of Chile’s more northerly regions. Vine growing here requires more patience, skill and nerve than in other valleys. The Pinot grows on a red clay soil here. The pressing is at low temperature to extract colour and aromas but no harsh tannins. The fermentation is relatively cool with gentle pumpovers. After fermentation is finished, 10% of the blend is aged for 6 months in French oak to give more complexity to the wine.
