Production information

Producer: Chilcas

Individual vineyards, ecological wine practices (including some vineyards certified as organic) and a new winemaker all add up to an incredibly exciting portfolio ranging from Reserva upwards. Chilcas’ approach is to nurture individual parcels and vineyards to create wines with individual character and personality. The wines are quite different from the vast swathes of generic, branded wines to come out of Chile at similar price points.

Production note

Grapes were hand-picked. Underwent a 5-day cold-soak at 46–50°F aimed at extracting the maximum varietal aromatic intensity. After this maceration is completed, 100% of the grapes were fermented in open-topped stainless steel tanks which are ideal for making the delicate Pinot Noir. Fermentation lasted 18 to 25 days at a controlled temperature that stretched out between 77°-79°F to preserve the delicate aromatic intensity. 100% of the wine was aged in French oak barrels for 10 to 12 months, 30% new. The wine was naturally cold stabilized during winter and then earth-filtered prior to bottling.
