TROTAMUNDOS – PINOT NOIR

Product Information

Pinot Noir grapes were hand-picked at 24.7°Brix at their peak of flavor, maturity and balance; one quarter was “whole-cluster” fermented and the rest fermented traditionally at 23°C, using “pissonage” and light pumpovers to retain the grape’s aromatic components so special to the Leyda terroir; then racked, filtered and aged in French Oak Barrels for 18 months; bottled with a natural cork finish.

Type

100% Pinot Noir

Location

Chile - Leyda Valley

Tasting notes

Medium-red color, with a slight orange tint, typical of Burgundian-style Pinot Noir. Aromas of dark cherries, red plums and a hint of nutmeg. On the palate, notes of blackberries and dark chocolate with smoky and mineral notes in the finish.

Pairing Suggestions

Very versatile, goes with meat and fish, poultry, beef, game (venison) pastas, dishes with mushrooms, asparagus or beets, delicate triple crème cheese like ``Delice di Bourgogne`` or soft goat cheese like Cypress Grove's ``Humboldt Fog.``

APPELLATION

Leyda Valley, Chile – This region sits on a set of rolling hills on the seaward side of the coastal range, particularly cold because of the Humboldt Current and consequently produces bright, vibrant wines. The soil here at 180 mts. above sea level is largely clay and loam over a granite base with moderate drainage.
