Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this single-vineyard wine come from the coast of Itata Valley approximately 248.55 miles south of Santiago. The combination of the cold and rainy climate and the ancient granite soils make this an area with tremendous potential for Pinot Noir. Hand-picked at the end of March, the grapes are crushed, and undergo five days of cold maceration 50 F (10°C). Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 8 days at controlled temperatures 78.8 F (26°C). The wine was then aged for 6 months in contact with French oak.


Interesting Fact

The Terra Pura illustration on the label seeks to convey the importance of maintaining the ecosystem in which humans, plants and animals coexist. The trumpets/speakers at the apex of the illustration represent the importance of listening to what nature has to tell us.


Serving Hints
Terra Pura Pinot Noir is great as an aperitif, and ideal to accompany red and white meats, pastas with sauces, and various types of cheese.
