Litoral Leyda Valley Pinot Noir 2018


New product

Litoral Leyda Valley Pinot Noir Ventolera is a refined Chilean take on Burgundy's signature red grape variety. Grapes are grown only a few miles from the Pacific oceans, in the temperate Leyda Valley vineyards, giving the wine subtle cherry and spice aromas. 8 months in French oak give the wine broad, spicy flavours and a long, satisfying finish.

More info

The fruit for this Pinot Noir comes from the most granitic soils in the property. Picked from two blocks that were planted in 1999 and 2002, the vine rows with a south easterly orientation are known as "Block 1" and come from clone 242, whereas the rows with a north easterly orientation are "Block 20" and come from the same clone, 242. The vines are trained according to the Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP) method. Careful canopy management takes place with 18 shoots per metre to protect the fruit exposure (less than 15%) and enhance the freshness in the final wine. The vines have two bunches per shoot.

The grapes in each sector of the vineyard were analysed according to their taste profile and physiological ripeness and then hand-picked at optimal ripeness. Once the grapes arrived at the winery they were then cooled down for 12 hours before being carefully selected. They were destemmed and transferred immediately to stainless steel tanks, where fermentation took place at 23°C, followed by maceration in a very reductive environment. The total vinification lasted 25 days. The wine was racked into French oak barrels of second passage for a period of eight months. The wine was not fined prior to bottling.
