Morandé Reserva Pinot Noir

MXN $335

Grape: Pinot Noir

Region: Casablanca Valley, Chile

You’ll taste/smell: skip the Concha y Toro wines you see everywhere. This is the Chilean Pinot Noir you want to drink, the delicate flavor of maraschino cherries and wild strawberries are the perfect balance of sweet and spicy. It’s hard to put down. It’s light and perfect on the tongue and offers wave after wave of pure Pinot character.

Good to have it with: ideal to accompany oily fish, such as cod and sea bass; also hams, pastas, fresh cheeses (maybe a crumbly cotija cheese) and creamy soups.

Best to have it: 57 ºF, 14ºC

Description

Beautiful bright cherry-red color with intense fruity aromas that recalls raspberries and cherries with pleasing notes of roses, cinnamon, and damp earth. The tasting notes are rich in fresh red fruit and spices with a delicate body, elegant structure, good balance and intensity, and a long finish.

The clay and granitic soils of limited fertility and the valley’s maritime influence enable the production of grapes with high aromatic expression and abundant freshness. The vineyard is planted to high density (10,000 plants/ha) on hillsides facing south and southwest to achieve the best solar exposure during the coolest hours of the day. They are trellised to vertical shoot position and guyot pruned. Minimal irrigation encourages balanced growth for high-quality grapes. Harvest takes place in mid- to late March.

The carefully selected handpicked grapes are gently crushed, leaving approximately 20% of the berries whole for greater expression of the fruit. Following a 3-day pre-fermentation cold soak the must is inoculated with selected yeasts to initiate alcoholic fermentation.

Aged in barrels for 10 months, then 6 months in bottle.

Alcohol Grade: 13%
