' Quintessential - Matetic Corralillo Pinot Noir

This Pinot Noir has an intense red color, with aromas of strawberry, raspberry and blueberry, as well as subtle spicy notes that are characteristic of the variety. The tannins are smooth and elegant, and the vibrant acidity leads to a long and juicy finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The wine is made with organic grapes, coming from the winery’s Valle Hermoso Vineyard, located just 7.45 miles (12 km) from the Pacific Ocean. The vines were planted on gentle, sloping hills where they are directly influenced by the cool coastal climate. Thanks to the biodynamic management of the vineyard, the grapes reach a natural balance. Harvested by hand, bunches and berries were selected and then transferred to five- to-eight-ton stainless-steel tanks for a cool pre- fermentation maceration at 42.8 F (6 C). The wine is then aged in French oak barrels for eleven months to improve the evolution of the tannins.

Serving Hints
This wine pairs well with oily fish, duck confit, light red meats, pastas, mushroom risotto, cheeses, and spicy foods.
