Elegant and compex Pinot from Chile’s cool-climate, southern valley of Malleco with volcanic soils.
A gentle ruby red color wine. The aroma displays elegance and typicity on the nose with floral notes, such as violets and red fruit, that recall strawberries and rosehips. Subtle notes of vanilla and roasted nuts enhance the wine’s complexity. The palate confirms its excellent flavor typicity with a generous, ample opening framed by fine tannins and a refreshing acidity that prolongs the flavors to produce a long, smooth and elegant finish.
Try with eggplant, smoky glazed ham, or grilled vegetable rigatoni.
Really different, aromatic and expressive; this wine is produced with the fruit form vineyards that have very shallow soils with a huge tuff (compacted volcanic ashes with small stones) chunk underneath -- a well-drained soil that generates very low yields. There are notes of aromatic herbs, chamomile, exotic spices, cola nut, and a core of ripe berries in a very showy and aromatic nose. The palate is very silky with flavors that bring back the notes found in the nose. This is more New World here, exotic and aromatic; Pedro Parra talks about 'funky-punky,' certainly showy, in a very specific style. This represents very good value.The Wine Advocate September 2015
Vivid ruby-red. Pungent dark berry, cherry pit and anise scents are brightened by peppery spice and smoky mineral qualities. Intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors slowly gain sweetness and pick up a sexy floral pastille nuance as the wine opens up. Unwinds very nicely with air and finishes with a jolt of peppery spices, appealing sweetness and round, harmonious tannins.Vinous February 2017
