Espiritu de Chile Intrepido Pinot Noir Reserva 2020
A superb value Pinot Noir from Chile's Curicó Valley.
A ripe and rounded Pinot Noir that offers all the typical Pinot silkiness, soft plums and raspberries and a light touch of oak to add complexity.
Bright colour with good intensity. Enticing aromas of mature black fruits with notes of black cherry, plums, and ripe strawberries, together with some cinnamon and vanilla. Tasty on the palate with good concentration and a finish marked by delicate notes of strawberries. A medium bodied wine with a nice elegance and a longlasting finish.
The perfect match for smoked ham and grilled salmon. Also try it with soft rind cheeses or salads.
The fantastic Espíritu de Chile wines portray the diverse landscape, culture, history and tastes of Chile. The Explorador and Intrepido ranges include wines from some of the best wine making regions in the country - Curicó, Maipo and Leyda Valleys.
The grapes used in this Pinot Noir were sourced from the Curicó valley, one of Chile’s valleys with the richest winegrowing tradition. The vineyards are close to the Andes, between 500 and 700 meters above sea level.
Grapes were softly crushed and underwent a pre-fermentation maceration for 5 days at 10º C. Then the alcoholic fermentation took place in open top tanks. During this period cap plunging and pump overs were done manually.
Malolactic fermentation took place in French oak barrels (30% first use / 70% second and third use barrels), where the wine was kept for 8-10 months before bottling.
The perfect bottle to drink while you share the experiences of your most recent adventure.
