Marques de Casa Concha Pinot Noir
Delicate deep red. The nose presents concentrated aromas of cherries and raspberries. The palate offers a refined texture and complex flavors of cherries, raspberries, licorice with a notable structure. Feels so lush, fine and delicate.
VINEYARD OF ORIGIN: San Julián Vineyard, D.O. Limarí, Limarí Valley..
VINEYARD DESCRIPTION: The San Julián Vineyard is located 190 m a.s.l. and 30 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean on the south bank of the Limarí River. The clay soils are rich in calcium carbonate. The temperatures are cold and the mornings are cloudy, which allows the fruit to ripen slowly and produce fresh wines. The Pinot Noir vines come from clones 777 and 113 (Dijon) and are trellised to vertical shoot position.
SOIL: Alluvial silty-clay with a substrate of rounded stones, a base of calcium carbonate, and little organic matter.
CLIMATE: Coastal. The cool breezes from the coast blow directly into the valley and moderate the temperatures. The combination of the temperature, the typical morning clouds, and indirect sunlight on the grapes during most of the day allows the grapes to ripen slowly and thus produce fresher wines.
AGING: 11 months in French oak barrels.
AGING POTENTIAL: Drink now or cellar through 2024.
