On the nose notes of raspberry, fresh cherries and flowers bring a rose to mind, while the oak lends spicy tones in good harmony with the fruits. An intense fruity flavour, floral and slightly spicy, with good body - elegant, complex and persistent.

More info

The Pinot Noir Gran Reserva originates from the El Ensueño property in the cold sector of Lo Ovalle, in Casablanca. The grapes belong to a specific vineyard, planted in 1997 with a Davies clone, which results in well balanced plants that have small bunches and grape berries that deliver grapes with more expressive colours, aromas and flavours, due to the limited production. The vineyard is planted on vertical espaliers, with a frame of 2.5 x 1.0 meters, equivalent to 5,500 plants/ha. The soil is granitic clay, with very low fertility. It is watered using trickle irrigation.

Harvesting is manual, in boxes of ten kilos. Once in the bodega, the grape is cooled for 48 hours at 5°C before the grape berries are selected. The crushing, and the subsequent “remontage”, are carried out without the intervention of pumps, with the intention of giving the grape the most delicate treatment possible. Before primary fermentation, cold maceration is undertaken for approximately five days at 5°C, thus extracting the fresh fruity aromas. Fermentation is carried out at a low temperature (23-25 °C). Total maceration exceeds 30 days, after which the wine is removed from the vats and placed in 300 and 600 litre casks of French oak, and also in 2000-litre barrels for 14 months, at which time the malolactic or secondary fermentation also takes place.

Morandé

Morandé was founded in 1996 by Pablo Morandé, and found immediate recognition both domestically and abroad. Morandé are true pioneers – they were the first family to develop the Casablanca D.O., recognising the fantastic potential of this cool-climate wine region. They also led the way in reviving old viticultural regions such as Maule and Itata, working with old dry-farmed bush vines and unconventional varieties such as Carignan, País and Cinsault. All of the wines are produced with grapes from Morandé’s own vineyards. Their winemaking philosophy is guided by seeking the right terroir for each grape variety, and with significant vineyard holdings they are well placed to achieve this.
