2017 Domaine Nico Grand Mere Pinot Noir, Valle de Uco Argentina

  • Sale
  • Regular price $30.00

Estate owned by Laura Catena

Elegant and classic Pinot Noir that fits the name "Grandmother".  Laura has a profound respect for what grandparents do for children, and she wanted to honor their love and wisdom with this wine.

Villa Bastias is located in Tupungato within the Uco Valley.  The vineyard is old and planted with Dijon Clones in 1993.  The Grand Mère parcel gets more sun than the Grand Pere block, with generous and silky tannins. Wine making is traditional and gentle for these delicate wines.  Yields are extremely low in both sites due to the age of the vineyard.  

 Tasting Notes:

Red cherry and strawberry fruit aromas. As it opens up, a little black fruit combined with a spicy character of black pepper and cinnamon. Medium acidity with horizontal mouth.
