Pallet Details:

In the shadow of the El Descabezado volcano, lies a wiry old block of Pinot Noir rooted in rocky, glacial soils. The "El Infernillo" (translates to little devil) vineyard was planted in 2000. The grapes from the naturally low-yielding vines were used as a blending component, often into Merlot to add vibrancy and elegance. Boutinot discovered the quality of the vineyard Pinot Noir back in 2012 when Eric Monnin, Burgundian winemaker and creative genius of Boutinot owned production, became besotted by it. The quality was immediately obvious and with Eric's guidance, we have been working with the fine fruit from this almost 50 acres vineyard ever since. Little is aged in new Vosges demi-muids then judiciously blended with the unoaked majority. All components of this wine are vinified in a 200 year old hacienda that has survived three of the strongest earthquakes in recorded history!

Food Match

Try with finger-licking marinated ribs, pink lamb and roasted veggies or a mushroom and chicken risotto.

Tasting Notes

An exciting find from the depths of Chile. Deliciously long, bright, textural Pinot from cold, stony vineyards deep in the Central Valley's old glacial riverbeds. Summer fruits of red currant, raspberry and wild strawberries on the nose follow through to a juicy palate. A touch of oak adds a spicy complexity.
