Casablanca Valley Pinot Noir

Chile has become a fascinating country for wine. While much of Chile is associated with rich red wines, made primarily from Merlot, Casablanca Valley is going to great lengths to prove to the world how flexible and varied the terroir of this Latin American country can be. In Casablanca Valley, you’ll find many of the big name grape varietals, including the country’s classic Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs, but also a strong focus on aromatic varietals, including Viognier, Gewurztraminer and Riesling. All of these thrive in the favorable climatic conditions and mineral-rich sandy soils the valley offers, and result in a beautiful set of wines which blur the line between the old world and the new.

Casablanca Valley is situated sixty miles northwest of the country’s capital, Santiago, and as far as wine regions go, it’s a very young one. The first vines of this region were planted in the 1980s, in an experimental move that wanted to make the most of the long, warm summer days which were tempered by winds and fog coming off the nearby Pacific Ocean. The relatively cool climate results in grapes which are remarkably balanced, making wines which are highly sophisticated and complex, and full of the finest features of their unique terroir.

Regularly described as being the grape varietal responsible for producing the world's most romantic wines, Pinot Noir has long been associated with elegance and a broad range of flavors The name means 'black pine' in French, and this is due to the fact that the fruit of this particular varietal is especially dark in color, and hangs in a conical shape, like that of a pine cone. Despite being grown today in almost every wine producing country, Pinot Noir is a notoriously difficult grape variety to cultivate. This is because it is especially susceptible to various forms of mold and mildew, and thrives best in steady, cooler climates. However, the quality of the fruit has ensured that wineries and vintners have persevered with the varietal, and new technologies and methods have overcome many of the problems it presents. Alongside this, the wide popularity and enthusiasm for this grape has ensured it will remain a firm favorite amongst wine drinkers for many years to come.
