Medium ruby red in colour, this wine presents complex aromas of red fruit and cherries with notes of violets and forest floor. In the mouth, it is medium-bodied with excellent acidity and very fine tannins, balanced with an intense, fresh fruity note and long finish. This wine can be enjoyed young and has excellent cellaring potential for the next 6 to 8 years. 

Winemaker "100% Pinot Noir fermented in small, 1,000-litre vats with 30% whole clusters. Fermentation is spontaneous without the addition of yeast or enzymes at an average temperature of 24 C°. The wine was aged in used Burgundian barrels for 12 months. Vines grow in limestone soils composed of clay with a high percentage of calcium carbonate. Cool Maritime climate strongly influenced by the Pacific Ocean 20km away from the vineyard." 

Taste & Aroma

Luis Gutiérrez (Robertparker.com) "They managed to get some fruit from the Talinay vineyard to use in the 2018 Legado Pinot Noir, and the 2019 is 100% from that limestone-rich vineyard in Limarí. I had not tasted this wine since the 2015 vintage, and the wine feels quite different, with more freshness and a chalky sensation on the palate, moderate alcohol and balanced acidity. It matured in used barriques for 11 months, and the oak is virtually imperceptible. 16,416 bottles produced."

Zalto Denk-Art Burgundy Glass

The Zalto Burgundy glass is recommended for all Pinot Noirs, designed almost specifically for Pinot’s delicate aromas. The aromas of Pinot Noir are often the most delicate, but when revealed can be the most enticing and pretty. The Zalto Burgundy glass is the widest of all the Zalto glasses providing the largest surface area for wine. This allows for rapid aeration, revealing all of the delicate spice, herb, floral, earth and berry aromas to be maximized. The narrower rim holding these aromas for an unparalleled experience of the elegant subtleties. The Zalto Burgundy is also very good for Nebbiolo, especially Barolo.
