Elegant and classic Pinot Noir that fits the name "Grandfather". Laura has a profound respect for what grandparents do for children, and she wanted to honor their love and wisdom with this wine.
About the Vineyard
Villa Bastias is located in Tupungato within the Uco Valley. The vineyard is old and planted with Dijon Clones in 1993. The Grand Père parcel is more shaded than the sunnier Grand Mere section, with delicate red fruits and high acidity. Wine-making is traditional and gentle for these delicate wines. Yields are extremely low in both sites due to the age of the vineyard.
Fermented with 20% whole clusters and indigenous year in Oak roll-fermentor of 600L and 50% stainless-steel tanks. Punch-down extraction was done by hand with max temperature reaching 25 Celsius for 7-14 days. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel.
Intense fresh red fruits, medium-high acidity. Low perception of alcohol. Fine and silky tannins with a lengthy finish.
