93 pts - GUIA PENIN

Humo blanco

Grand Cuvée - Pinot Noir

The difference between the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean (around 10°C) and the temperature of the land causes a morning mist to form (rather like in Carneros Bay, Napa Valley) which is funnelled up the East to West valley to Lolol. This mist is called the « Humo Blanco » and serves to extend the coolness of the night until late morning. This particularly suits the cool climate grapes such as Sauvignon and Pinot Noir - hence the creation of these two aromatically rich wines named after this morning mist.
  • Variety

    100% PINOT NOIR.
    Pinot Noir is the red grape variety used to produce the famous Côte d'Or red wines
    in Burgundy. It is among the most delicate of varieties, owing to its refinement and
    ability to reflect its terroir, only unveiling its qualities when grown in the noblest soils, with low yields and vinified with care.

  • Location

    Lolol Valley.

  • Tasting notes

    Ruby light with red reflections. The nose is very expressive with notes of strawberry and cherries. On the palate the wine is rich and round and has a well-balanced finish with a slight acidity and aromatic notes of red fruits and spice, of cloves and other spices.

  • The Vintage

    The wine-growing season began with the most severe frosts seen in Chile since 1929. Despite our well-protected location in Lolol, we did suffer some damage, and yields were lower than usual, especially for the whites. The beginning of the summer was fairly hot, until mid-January. After that it remained very dry, but was considerably cooler (especially at night). What should have been an early year ended up being just as late as 2013.

  • Suggestions

    This wine has a voluptuous palate which should well fit cream and mushroom gravy dishes. Dishes with suits creamy sauces.
