2016 Montsecano Refugio Pinot Noir (750ml)

Pinot Noir from Casablanca, Chile


All wines from 2016 had been bottled on January 22, 2017, and I tasted the whole range with one of the partners, Julio Donoso three weeks after the bottling. We started with the 2016 Refugio Pinot Noir, which is pure Pinot Noir from red soils rich in clay and granite in Casablanca, fermented with indigenous yeasts and kept in egg-shaped cement vats until bottling. This is very fresh, focused and complex even if it's still so obviously young. The grapes were harvested extremely early, 17 days earlier than their first vintage (2010) even considering the year was cooler and later ripening. It's very tasty and elegant, with symmetry and chiseled flavors. It was not dizzy despite the recent bottling. 16,000 bottles produced.
