This Pinot Noir is the Grand Cru of our portfolio. Lo Abarca Hills refers to the vineyards that surround the village of Lo Abarca. The best soils are found here, consisting of limestone with marine deposits. The vines, with their low yields of between 3 and 4 tons per hectare, ripen the grapes very slowly, resulting in concentrated grapes with a nice, fresh acidity. The wine is spontaneously fermented in stainless steel.

Punch downs are applied three times a day during the first 10 days in order to extract structure, body, and color out of the skins. The wine is transferred to French oak barrels, of which 30 percent consist of new oak, after fermentation. The wine stays here for 12 months and is not filtered. When bottled, it is stored for three years in the winery to let it age and develop the complexity of a serious Pinot Noir with a seductively perfumed bouquet of red and dark cherries, plums, and subtle spicy clove notes on the nose. It is enhanced by an elegant and refined concentrated palate displaying richness and generosity.

The complex palate is layered and balanced, complemented by fine silky tannins, all hallmark traits of minimalist winemaking.
