Hacienda Araucano Pinot Noir 2014

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Earthy and a bit herbal on the nose with a sage like top note adding freshness and detail to the core of gently spicy cherry fruit. Smooth and polished to the point off this having no detail. It’s well balanced and shows off some gentle spiced cherry flavors but it sort of just sits in your mouth with drying tannins that build across the palate and then clip the finish. This would actually work nicely with food but it sort of needs food to bring this into balance. A bit tough. 83pts

Hacienda Araucano:
These wines are a product of an old plot in Apalta, which Francois Lurton has been overseeing for many years.  The wines have good aging potential, produced with great care and attention, from the selection of the grapes to the balancing of the alcohol and acidity

A hint of cloves and other spices is intermingled with the overall aromatic complexity. The wine is supported by a smooth, supple structure and fresh flavours, confirming that the Lolol valley provides exceptional conditions for this grape.
