Food Pairings for Concha Y Toro Pinot Noir Terrunyo
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.
