Espinos Y Cardos, Pinot Noir, Casablanca, Central Valley, Chile
Between the mountains and the sea, in the Central Valley, this winery looks to craft subtle, pure expressions of classic international varieties from their white and red wines.
Focused on vineyards in Casablanca and Curico, Los Espinos combines cutting edge winemaking with regional typicity to provide a range that is at the beating heart of the country. Santa Macarena is a testament to the individuality and intrigue that so many Chilean wine drinkers are yet to discover. Amazing fruit, grown in the Leyda region 5km from the ocean, so close you can smell it, crafted into a unique expression of the enigmatic Pinot Noir that clearly demonstrates the real quality that lives in this land. It is aged oak for 6 months to add complexity and subtle toasty character to the final wines. This Pinot is bright, aromatic and fresh with subtle oak playing a supporting role. The emphasis on the delicious red fruit flavours, drinkability and enjoyment. A seriously cool Pinot. Drink with anything from Salmon to Duck.
