It’s all about purity here with blueberries, raspberries, rose hips, rose leaf and hints of tea, mushrooms and truffle. Full-bodied, firm and structured with a vertical line of tannins that flush out to very fine velvet. The fruit is very pretty with pistachio and blanched almonds. Muscular. Give this time to show what it has. Better after 2022.
The 2019 Las Pizarras Pinot Noir, Aconcagua Costa Pinot Noir from slate (pizarra) soils, is mellow and soft in this vintage. The grapes were picked early, between February 26th and 28th, and after a four- to five-day cold soak, they fermented in small open vats with 15% full clusters and 12 to 20 days of maceration. It's perfumed and floral with notes of roses and red fruit and a faint twist of iron. It has structure and a chalky texture, with good depth. It's long and tasty, with very fine tannins and a bitter twist in the finish. It matured in French oak barrels, 45% of them new, for 13 months. 6,615 bottles were filled in May 2020.
