Winemaker Notes

Apaltagua Colección Pinot Noir comes from a limited edition line that showcases the finest wines from Apaltgaua’s best growing regions. The Colección Pinot Noir is from the San Antonio Valley estate vineyard which is known for its coastal Mountain range and close proximity to the Pacific Ocean. With a pale ruby-red and medium intensity, the wine has pronounced aromas of wild fruits, such as blackcurrant, raspberry with cassis and a touch of smoke from the toasted French oak. It is dry, with a medium-high level of acidity, and mature tannins.

Fresh and lively pinot with dried-strawberry and orange undertones. Medium body, firm tannins and a juicy finish.

Colchagua Valley Wine

Rapel Valley, Chile

Well-regarded for intense and exceptionally high quality red wines, the Colchagua Valley is situated in the southern part of Chile’s Rapel Valley, with many of the best vineyards lying in the foothills of the Coastal Range.

Heavy French investment and cutting-edge technology in both the vineyard and the winery has been a boon to the local viticultural industry, which already laid claim to ancient vines and a textbook Mediterranean climate.

The warm, dry growing season in the Colchagua Valley favors robust reds made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Malbec and Syrah—in fact, some of Chile’s very best are made here. A small amount of good white wine is produced from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

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.”
