Santa Alicia - Wine of Chile

Pinot Noir

VINEYARD

The Casablanca Valley is located approximately 40 kilometers from the coast and enjoys a mediterranean climate. It receives the influence of the ocean, which causes low temperatures at night and morning fog. This condition allows grapes to have a longer ripening cycle and to achieve greater balance between acidity and xxxxxxxx as well as greater aromatic potential.

HARVEST

End of march.

VINIFICATION

Grapes are harvested by hand in bins. they are transported to the reception area in the early hours when temperatures are still low. The next steps are crushing and fermentation in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature between 24 and 26°c for approximately 7 to 8 days. Later, around 40% of the blend is aged in french oak for about 4 or 5 months to add a fine and subtle touch of wood and complexity.

FINING

Natural fining. filtration by final membrane.

BOTTLING

Every year since the beginning of spring.

TASTING NOTES

Bright pale ruby red color.
Very expressive nose with aromas of fresh red fruits like strawberries, cranberries and cherries, and delicate notes of cinnamon and toast.
The mouth is dominated by fruit flavors that are well integrated with the wood, and smooth, round tannins.

PAIRING SUGGESTION:
Fatty oven-roasted fish, poultry meat stews, pasta with creamy though not spicy sauces, sushi, grilled salmon.
