The use of seasoned barrels during aging lends additional texture. The palate is well balanced and features impressive volume with soft, round tannins.

Vinification: The grapes were hand-picked in March and then immediately sorted at the winery. The fruit was gently de-stemmed to ensure only minimal breakage of the berries. The grapes were cold macerated for six days followed by a warm ferment for two weeks and gentle punch downs twice daily. 50% of the wine was then aged for six months in seasoned French oak barrels. Prior to bottling, the wine was naturally cold stabilized and lightly filtered.
Food Pairing: White meats, mild cheeses, pastas with shellfish and seasonal salads.

History of Reserva Pinot Noir 2015

The Pinot Noir grapes come from ten and fifteen-year-old vines from Chilensis’ ‘Juan’ and ‘Huemul’ blocks located on its estate San Rafael vineyard in the Maule Valley (137 miles south of Santiago and 15 miles from the Andes Mountains range). The valley is geographically diverse, with a Mediterranean climate. Summers are warm and dry with a significant day-night temperature variation. Winters are cold and rainy. Most of the vineyard’s alluvial soils are loam to clay loam in texture with a moderate fertility. Yield was just over three tons per acre.
