Viña Leyda Pinot Noir Reserva
Chile – 2020
Tasting Note: This Pinot Noir is made in a fruit driven style showing the origin and cold climate influence. Expressive nose with berries as blueberries and strawberries. Earthy notes, mineral and herbaceous makes this wine a true example of Leyda Valley. In palate is fruit concentrated with a lively acidity that enlarges the ending.
Food Matching: Chicken roast with creamy sauce potatoes. Oven baked salmon and vegetables as well as most pizzas and light pastas and fresh cheese.
Vineyard: Costal views from steep, granite, rolling hills with the brisk Humboldt current keeping the fruit fresh. This vineyard has the recipe for creating fresh fruit with lifted aromatics, balance and harmony.
Vinification: The clusters were received in the cellar, destemmed and gently crushed. The juice was macerated at 8°C in stainless steel tanks during 5 days, in order to get high intensity colours and flavours. Then the fermentation was managed at 26-28°C for 8 days with a gentle punching regime. After the fermentation, 50% of the wine was racked into French oak barrels during 6 months, where the malolactic fermentation took place. The ageing period was for 10 months.
