Leyda Pinot Noir 2019

This 100% Pinot Noir comes from our vineyards located in the Leyda Valley, just 12 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. 

About the Vineyard

As the Leyda Valley is formed by rolling hills, this Pinot originates from various blocks with different exposures: northeast, northwest and south. It comes from a massal selection as well as Clones 777, 115, 667, 828 and 9. Our work in the vineyards focuses on obtaining a yield of eight to nine tons per hectare while managing the leaf canopies to protect the grapes from direct sunlight to maintain fruit intensity.

Wine Production

Each block is harvested separately in order to differentiate each clones’ characteristics. In the bodega, we de-stemmed, gently crushed and then macerated the grapes at low temperatures (8°-10°C) for three days in stainless steel tanks. The alcoholic fermentation lasted for 10 days at controlled temperatures between 24°-26°C. Once ready, the wine was racked into stainless steel tanks where 90% aged in tanks and 10% in French oak barrels for five months before bottling.

Tasting Notes

Leyda Pinot Noir’s aromatic profile is a pure and honest reflection of the variety, displaying acidic red fruit aromas such as raspberry and cherry, along with herbal notes typical of the Leyda Valley. In mouth it is very fresh and juicy with a vibrant acidity and sweet, round tannins.

Food Pairing

Best with Grilled Meats and vegetables.
