Barda Pinot Noir Bodega Chacra 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"San Patricio del Chanar, a new viticultural region in Patagonia, is home to unparalleled conditions for growing top quality grape varieties. Light stony soils, generous streams of pure melt-water, intense sunlight and a substantial diurnal temperature difference all contribute to make this the next important wine region to emerge from Argentina. The Schroeders, a European family deeply rooted in Patagonia and well-known for their solid enterprising profile, approached this ambitious 120-hectare productive project using such varieties as Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon from red grapes and Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay from white grapes. As the vines settled in their terroir through an innovative farming system, the winery saw its inception in October, 2002, and grew to become today's fully-functioning vineyard-winery complex, producing exquisite wines that captivate local and foreign experts and consumers. All their wines are hand harvested. 40% of the wine is aged for 3 months in French and American oak barrels. Round, fruity, with notes of strawberry and raspberries."- Distributor

Bodega Chacra is located in the Rio Negro Valley of northern Patagonia, 620 miles south oi Buenos Aires, 1,240 miles north of Tierra del Fuego, and roughly equidistant west to east from the Andes Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. The property situation in the arid central Argentine desert is tempered by the confluence of the Neuquen and Lirray Rivers, both of which flow from the Andes and converge in the Rio Negro, which in tum flows into the Atlantic. The Rio Negro Valley itself is a glacial bed 15.5 miles wide stretching 310 miles along the rivers banks at an elevation of 750 feet above sea level. The valley is irrigated by a network of channels excavated in the late 1820s by British colonists who observed the abundant snow melt flowing from the Andes and created an oasis in the middle of the desert.
