This Pinot Noir comes from a small Hacienda in Maule. Traditionally fruit farmers, the Moreno Family diversified into wine. The story goes that after a Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot tasting, our winemaker Eric Monnin was served strawberries from the estate. He commented how delicious they were and if they could grow strawberries of this quality, then they must be able to grow Pinot Noir. Low and behold they had already begun working with the varietal and Eric tasted their beautiful Pinot Noir for the first time. The vineyards sit in the shadow of the El Dezcabazado volcano and the resulting soils are both rocky and fertile. Maule is in the southern part of the Central Valley and temperatures here are much cooler than further north. Pinot flourishes in this environment and enjoys the healthy conditions where it can usually ripen without damp. The cooler temperatures allow it to retain crucial acidity which helps provide balance to the ripe fruit. 

A delicate and elegant Pinot Noir showing ripe fruit flavours of plums and wild strawberries, balanced with subtle smoky notes and a deliciously lingering finish.

Very pleasurable on its own, this would nevertheless be superb with oriental duck salads, or light middle eastern lamb dishes.

Sells elsewhere for around £8, traditionally a restaurant wine, where it costs around £23!
