Viña San Esteban is located in central Chile at the mountainous, eastern edge of the Aconcagua Valley, where the distinct geography and climate, together with the excellent work in the winery, deliver a unique character to its wines.
100% Pinot Noir from San Esteban’s best plots.
This Pinot is grown on a single parcel only 16 Km from the Pacific Ocean. The sandy soil of the vineyard lies on a clay bed, providing excellent drainage whilst at the same time providing a source of water during the summer. The cool coastal breeze allows grapes to ripen gently and to produce the distinctive fruitiness of Coastal Aconcagua wines.
Hand-picked, the grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel and then aged in 70% French and 30% American 225-litre oak barrels for 8 months.
Bright red in appearance, the nose is full of red fruit aromas (raspberry and cherry) as well as floral notes. The palate is full with juicy fruit and spice flavours supported by soft tannins. The finish is long.
