Leyda Pinot Noir Las Brisas Vineyard 2018 - Wine

Tasting Notes

A great exponent of Pinot Noir, aromatically fresh and complex. A juicy, fruity and elegant wine. Bright colour. Clean and direct fruity nose, with hints of red cherries, raspberries and a subtle wild herb note. Delicate and refined on the palate. Juicy with ripe flavours of berries combined with mineral notes and a lively acidity.

Production Notes

The grapes were hand harvested. After de-stemming, 30% of the grapes were not passed through crusher in order to keep some amount of whole grapes during cold maceration and the beginning of fermentation. The grapes were chilled to 10C and remained in open stainless steel tanks for 6 days under anaerobic conditions before selected yeast inoculation. Fermentation occurred at 27-28C for 7 days with a &;punching down regime of 3-4 times per day. The wine was racked into 2nd use French oak barrels and aged for 10 months.

Producer Profile

Vina Leyda is a pioneer in creating cool-climate wines in Chile. Leyda planted the first vineyard in the Leyda Valley in 1998. Prior to their arrival, the Leyda Valley, which is 12 kilometers from the coast, had been an area of pasture and basic crops such as wheat and barley.The valley is situated along the central coast of Chile and there is a strong influence from the Pacific Ocean, which is cold due to the influence of the Humboldt Current.The major challenge in grape growing in the area was getting water out to the valley, and this required Leyda building an eight kilometer pipeline. Leyda has been able to achieve an exceptional price to quality ratio with their wines. It has been described by Decanter Magazine;as "one of Chile's finest producers, exemplary for its consistently rewarding cool-climate wines that offer outstanding value for money and wonderful diversity."
