This 100% Pinot Noir wine comes from our own vineyards located in the recently discovered Leyda Valley, 12 km from the Pacific Ocean.
Its closeness to the sea makes it a unique spot for viticulture. The cool conditions during spring and summer due to maritime influence and summer breezes make it an extraordinary area for the development of Burgundian varieties such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Pinot´s vineyards were planted in 1998 and 2004 with massal selection, clone 777 and clone 115 in different blocks with different exposures (north, west and south), as Leyda Valley has rolling hills topography. The viticultural management is oriented in order to get controlled yield production, 7 to 8 ton/há for this Reserva Pinot and ensuring cluster´s protections from direct sunlight to keep fruit intensity and freshness of flavours.
The grapes were hand harvested in different picking moments in 500 kg bins: from March 25 th to April 22 nd at 23,5-25°B. In the cellar the clusters were destemmed, softly crushed and then received in stainless steel tank. Cold maceration was made at 8-10°C during 6 days following with the alcoholic fermentation at 26-28°C for 10 days. After dryness the wine was immediately racked off from the skins into stainless steel tank. 90% of the wine made malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tank and 10% in french oak barrels. The wine aged for 6 months before bottling.
Expressive and fruit driven, cold climate style of Pinot Noir, with red acid fruit together with spiciness and floral notes. Its strong expression makes it a good exponent of a maritime valley.
In mouth it is fruity, juicy and fresh, with good acidity that enlarges the palate. The tannins are soft, sweet and rounded..
Perfect with Grilled vegetables, chicken, turkey or baked fish.
