Leyda, Lot 21 Pinot Noir, Leyda Valley, San Antonio, 2020
(at South American Pinot Noir Tasting, 07 Aug 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2032
This Pinot Noir by Viviana Navarrete combines grapes from three calcareous polygons (also rich in iron and granite) in a vineyard just a couple of miles from the sea. 35% fermented in whole bunches with native yeasts, it is aged in concrete and foudres, resulting in an expressive, vibrant nose of fresh cherry, wild strawberry, spice, earth notes and hints of herb. In the mouth the flow is velvety with good energy and tension before the long, fragrant finish.
