A delicate and elegant Pinot Noir showing ripe fruit flavours of plums and wild strawberries, balanced with subtle smoky notes, and a delicious, lingering finish.

We have been working with the growers of Sierra Grande for many years, and Boutinot winemaker Eric Monnin has grown a close relationship with the aptly-named Hacienda Valle Frio, a beautiful 200 year old estate in the rocky, riverine Maule Valley. When Eric first visited the long-established family fruit grower he was hugely struck by the beautiful, 200 year old hill-top hacienda whose wooden columns and ancient palm trees have magically survived all the biggest earthquakes in recorded history.He was also struck by the strawberries grown there, and by sheer force of personality convinced them to grow some Pinot Noir! Since 2008, Eric has worked closely with winemaker Rodrigo on extracting the very best expression of their mountainous site apparent in the Sierra Grande Chardonnay and Cabernet, and of course the fabulous Pinot Noir that Eric tasted in those strawberries all those years ago!

Long standing working relationships with growers in the region enables us to source premium fruit, with the ultimate aim of making excellent quality Chilean house wines with true style and character. Vines are between 40 and 60 years old and part of a 45ha estate where peaches and apples are also grown. The vines are unirrigated and the vineyard is cool with a unique rocky mountain soil and glacial streams.

Grapes are harvested during the coolest part of the day to ensure they reach the winery in prime condition. Temperatures are kept fairly low throughout the winemaking process, to allow the grapes to express their natural fruit characters. No oak is used.

Very pleasurable on it's own, this would nevertheless be superb with oriental duck salads, or light middle eastern lamb dishes.
