Winemaker Notes

Vibrant red in the glass with fresh floral aromas mingling with red currants, strawberries, and raspberries. A medium-bodied pinot noir with ultrafine tannins and a refreshing balance between fruit, mushroom, and mineral notes, with hints of spice and cocoa from aging in oak barrels.

James Suckling

Red fruit with mushroom undertones. It’s medium-bodied with soft tannin's. Juicy with a clean, refreshing palate. Nice drink ability and a flavorful finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Alto Limay is a joint project between Paul Hobbs Imports and Familia Schroeder to explore and develop Patagonia pinot noir. Youthful and fresh, nuanced and expressive, Alto Limay Pinot Noir explores frontier winemaking in Patagonia, where wind is one of the dominating elements in winegrowing.

The Limay river joins the Neuquén river to form the Rio Negro, which flows to the Atlantic Ocean and separates Patagonia from the Pampas. The pristine Limay river flows from the Andes mountain snows and has some great fly fishing. The vineyards are located in San Patricio del Chañar, in the province of Neuquén, and with a short growing season, Pinot Noir is perfectly suited to this region.

One of the most southerly regions on the globe for fine wine production, Patagonia has experienced extraordinary vineyard expansion since the early 2000s.

Patagonia vineyards occupy the lower foothills of the Andes at 1,000 to 1,600 feet. Here cold air drops at night from incredibly steep elevations—the Andes reach well over 15,000 feet in this zone—a phenomenon that produces drastic diurnal shifts. Cold nights contrasted with hot summer days produce grapes with striking color, full ripeness, great finesse and aromatic intensity.

Favored for its luxury brands, the Patagonia wine growing region of Argentina focuses on a diverse array of international varieties: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillón and Viognier among the white grapes, and Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon for reds.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
