Crushed and Cured
Espinos y Cardos, Santa Macarena Single Vineyard Pinot Noir, Aconcagua
This single vineyard bright, aromatic and fresh with subtle oak playing a supporting role. The emphasis on the delicious red fruit flavours, drinkability and enjoyment. A seriously cool Pinot.
Focused on vineyards in Casablanca and Curico, Los Espinos combines cutting edge winemaking with regional typicity to provide a range that is at the beating heart of the country. Amazing fruit, grown in the Leyda region 5km from the ocean, crafted into a unique expression of the enigmatic Pinot Noir that clearly demonstrates the real quality that lives in this land.
Grapes are carefully selected and picked manually early in the morning. Cold maceration prior to alcoholic fermentation at 10C during 3-4 days in order increase skin components extraction. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out at low controlled temperature (Maximum 25C), which avoids the loss of aromatic compounds. Regular pumping over to facilitate colour extraction and skin components. Ageing in tank with oak to add complexity and subtle toasty character to the final wines.
