Errazuriz Las Pizarras Pinot Noir 2017

A bright ruby-red colour gives way to violet hues. Expressive notes of rosehip, wild raspberries and raspberry murtilla along whith delicate dried fruit notes. It replicates its aromas on the palate, accompanied by fresh notes of raspberries, cherries and nutmeg along with a subtle bloodiness and notes of chalk and iodine. Of great depth, its pronounced minerality, fine grained tannins and bright, coastal acidity linger through the finish.

A bright ruby-red colour gives way to violet hues. Expressive
notes of rosehip, wild raspberries and raspberry murtilla
along whith delicate dried fruit notes. It replicates its aromas
on the palate, accompanied by fresh notes of raspberries,
cherries and nutmeg along with a subtle bloodiness and notes
of chalk and iodine. Of great depth, its pronounced
minerality, fine grained tannins and bright, coastal acidity
linger through the finish.
Vineyard
Sourced entirely from our Aconcagua Costa Estate from
specific blocks that have a significant component of
metamorphic rock including slate (pizarras, in Spanish). Given
the extremes of this cool climate site, as well as the
uniqueness of its soils and elevations, each small block ripens
at its own pace. Its proximity to the cool Pacific Ocean and its
well-drained soils, with high level of slate and metamorphic
rock, allow the Estate to produce Pinot Noir of exceptional
complexity, depth, minerality and natural acidity.
Winemaking
All grapes (85% de-stemmed, 15% whole cluster) were picked
and rigorously sorted out by hand before placing them
directly into small open-top fermenters. 80% of the fruit had
a cold maceration at 8 to 10¼C for 5 to 7 days before starting
fermentation with 100% native yeasts, followed by an
extended average maceration period of up to 20 days. Daily gentle punch downs made by hand
helped to keep the cap moist. Free-run wine was drained and then kept for 13 months in 100%
French oak, 30% of them new.
Vintages
Warm temperatures in spring and lower than average rainfall resulted in an early start to this
challenging yet balanced 2015 vintage. The conditions produced an early harvest, with overall
small to normal berry sizes giving excellent flavour concentration and structure to the wine.
