Leyda Pinot Noir Lot 21 2015 - Wine

Tasting Notes

This delicate Pinot Noir is complex and elegant, with fine aromas of strawberry, cherry, orange peel and herbs, which combines perfectly with oak. Red berries, fresh and sweets are the first flavours in the palate, then cherries and soft tannins which linger in a long and persistent finish.

Production Notes

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 6 days with a punching down regime of 3 times per day.The wine was left on its lees and skins for an additional 2 days and then 100% of the wine was racked into new and one year used French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation 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."
