Weichafe Pinot Noir
The grapes are harvested in Las Dichas, the microvalley closest to the coast in the Casablanca Valley of Chile. It is a hidden gem for Pinot Noir lovers. This area has gained popularity among wine enthusiasts due to its unique terroir that allows the cultivation of high-quality grapes.
The cool ocean breeze and granitic soil give the Pinot Noir a distinctive flavor and aroma that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
The process of making Sauvignon Blanc Weichafe white wine involves a series of care and techniques that preserve the grape’s characteristics and achieve a high-quality product.
The production of Pinot Noir wine is a careful and meticulous process that starts from the moment of harvest. It is important to note that during destemming and crushing, the goal is not to grind the grapes but to keep the berries intact, which allows for the extraction of high-quality must.
Subsequently, a pre-fermentation maceration of one week is carried out to achieve the extraction of phenolic and aromatic compounds. Then, fermentation is initiated, followed by a two-week post-fermentation maceration before racking. This process takes place in stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity of the grape’s flavor and avoid any contamination.
Finally, the wine is aged for two years in multi-use barrels, which provide micro-oxygenation and a velvety texture to the wine, without a significant influence of wood. This careful production process allows for the production of high-quality Pinot Noir wine with exceptional complexity and balance.
This wine has fresh and vibrant aromas typical of its region of origin, leading to a journey of flavors and scents. On the palate, this wine presents delicate cherry notes thanks to the Pinot Noir grape, creating an elegant taste with a pleasant aftertaste. In addition, its exceptional balance between alcohol and acidity makes it a sparkling wine that is not insipid, with smooth and velvety tannins that allow for a long and profound finish complemented by the wine’s high natural acidity.
Weichafe Pinot Noir is a masterpiece of wine, with a combination of flavors that leaves the consumer wanting more. It is a wine that can be enjoyed on its own or with a delicious meal and will make the consumer feel like a true wine connoisseur. In summary, this wine is a reflection of the noble land it comes from and is an irresistible palate experience. Cheers!
