Concha Y Toro Pinot Noir Terrunyo 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark and deep red color. Intense hints of berries. Cigar box pepper and chocolate. Tasty and full-bodied. Elegant, powerful and lingering in mouth. Variety: 85% Carmenere, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc. Origin: Block 27, Peumo Vineyard (Carmenere) Peumo, Rapel Valley. Old Pirque Vineyard (Cabernet Sauvignon) Pirque, Maipo Valley. Puente Alto Vineyard (Cabernet Franc). Puente Alto, Maipo Valley. Soil: River bench associated soils, deep alluvial clay loam. The clays provide great water retention that contributes to good grape ripening. The retention characteristics are perfect for controlling plant growth. Climate: Subhumid mediterranean. Hot days give way to cold nights. The influence of the Cachapoal river reduces nocturnal summer temperatures, which slows the ripening of the grapes. Aging: Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months (60% in new barrels, 40% in one year old barrels). Harvest: Hand picked. April 25-May 7, 2002.
