Las Pizarras Pinot Noir

Aconcagua Costa
 This new wine is sourced entirely from Errazuriz's Aconcagua Costa Estate, from specific lots that have a significant component of pizarra (schist). Given the extremes of this cool climate site, and diversity of the soils and elevations, each small block ripens at its own pace. Proximity to the cool Pacific Ocean and well-drained soils with high level of schist and metamorphic rock allows the Estate to produce Pinot Noir with exceptional complexity, depth, minerality, and natural acidity.
The nose is intriguing, with layers of cherry, wild strawberry, rose hips, violets with delicate spicy notes of tarragon and dill. These elements carry over to the palate, accompanied by fresh notes of raspberries, cherries and nutmeg. The palate has great depth, with fine-grained tannins gliding gracefully with precision and structure from the cool-climate, coastal acidity.
