Tierra Alta Pinot Noir – Valle Central, Chile
Gorgeous Chilean Pinot Noir
For this Chilean Pinot Noir the vines used are between 40 and 60 years old and share part of a 45-hectare estate with peach and apple trees. The vines used for this wine are unirrigated and the vineyard is cool with a unique rocky mountain soil and glacial streams. Grapes are harvested during the coolest part of the day to ensure they reach the winery in prime condition. Temperatures are kept fairly low throughout the winemaking process, to allow the grapes to express their natural fruit characters. No oak is used during the aging process.
What does it go with?
Great by itself but also goes really well with duck, lamb and mushroom-based dishes.
