Vineyard Notes: This is from a single vineyard, Tupungato Winelands, that consists of eight acres planted in 2007.

Winemaking Notes: Hand harvested, single vineyard, from Gualtallary is 100% PInot Noir and spends 12 months in 225L and 500L French Barrique. 30% stem inclusion and all native yeasts.

Tasting Notes: Notes of strawberry, cherry, mushroom, baking spices, and clove are lifted from the glass. This leads into powdered white sugar, vanilla, blackberry, and cinnamon notes on the palate with smooth tannins and medium acidity. A long finish persists with caramel red apple, tobacco, and cola qualities.

    The 2019 Gran Terroir Pinot Noir feels a little riper and wider, with darker fruit and some more rusticity. It seems to have more texture and concentration, as it's a wine that was going to be aged in barrel for 12 months. The palate shows more austerity and the chalkiness from Gualtallary. 22,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2020.
