Professional Wine Reviews for Kingston Family Vineyards Pinot Noir Casablanca Valley Alazan 2016

Rated 91 by James Suckling
Fresh strawberry and lemon rind character throughout in this fine and fresh pinot. Enjoy. Drink now.
Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
The 2016 Pinot Noir Alazan was produced with fruit from their oldest vineyards planted in 1998 and 1999 in the Casablanca Valley. Some 15% of the wine matured in egg-shaped concrete vats, and the rest was kept in French oak barrels for eight months. There is more depth here, with contained ripeness and bright cherry aromas, hints of spices and a palate with good acidity and moderate alcohol. 4,441 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2016.

Winery Kingston Family Vineyards

Country: Chile

Chile has a long and rich wine history which dates back to the Spanish conquistadors of the 16th century, who were the first to discover that the wonderful climate and fertile soils of this South American country were ideal for vine cultivation. It has only been in the past forty or fifty years, however, that Chile as a modern wine producing nation has really had an impact on the rest of the world. Generally relatively cheap in price,Whilst being widely regarded as definitively 'New World' as a wine producing country, Chile has actually been cultivating grapevines for wine production for over five hundred years. The Iberian conquistadors first introduced vines to Chile with which to make sacramental wines, and although these were considerably different in everything from flavor, aroma and character to the wines we associate with Chile today, the country has a long and interesting heritage when it comes to this drink. Chilean wine production as we know it first arose in the country in the mid to late 19th century, when wealthy landowners and industrialists first began planting vineyards as a way of adopting some European class and style. They quickly discovered that the hot climate, sloping mountainsides and oceanic winds provided a perfect terroir for quality wines, and many of these original estates remain today in all their grandeur and beauty, still producing the wines which made the country famous.
