Veramonte

Pinot noir - Reserva 2018

Casablanca Valley

Chili- Vallée de Casablanca

      

Veramonte is inseparable from its creator, Augustin Huneeus. Born in Santiago de Chile, he is one of the rare Chilean professionals to have dedicated his whole life to vines and wine. It was in 1960 that Augustine became manager of Concha y Toro, then a small estate, which under his leadership would become Chile's largest producer. In 1971, the political situation would push him to seek other opportunities outside his native country. As Managing Director of Seagram, he will then supervise the activities of this company in 7 countries including the United States. In 1985, he became shareholder and president of Franscican Estate, a struggling estate which he would turn around into a producer of high-end wines.
During this period, he also developed two brands that are now world famous, Caliterra and Errazuriz. In 1989 he and his wife bought a property which he transformed into a wine estate called Quintessa. 1990 marks his return to Chile where he was one of the very first to identify the Casablanca Valley as a region of international quality wine production when there were only 25 hectares of vineyard on site. It was there that he created the Veramonte estate. The estate now covers 420 hectares and a good proportion of the grapes are sold to large Chilean estates. The vineyards are certified in organic farming. Today Veramonte is part of the Gonzales Byass Group, a Spanish family business founded in 1835.

Grape varieties:

100% pinot noir.

Tasting Notes:

This wine is defined as pure, delicate and precise pinot juice. Because we did not try to extract too much or to age too long and especially without new barrels which would have masked the delicacy of the fruit. It gives a very spicy impression with clove and cherry. This wine which exalts aromas and flavors of cherry and raspberry shows a delicate juice with a silky texture and particularly delicious. The palate has luscious and meaty tannins with a smooth, juicy and energetic feel. The finish is fresh.

Wine style:

Fruity and delicate red wine.

Food and wine :

Farm guinea fowl, thyme butter under the skin. Duck hearts with vine shoots, pinot noir sauce and morello cherry.

Aging potential in your cellar:

4 years.

75 cl - 14.5% volume
