Intro to Verum Pinot Noir Patagonia –
Verum Pinot Noir from Patagonia is a light elegant and flavoursome wine.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Verum Pinot Noir Patagonia has aromas of wild raspberries and subtle wood smoke. The palate is clean and refreshing with smoky notes, red and purple skinned fruits and just a touch of earthiness.
After hand picking and destemming the fruit is cold soaked for 3 days and this is followed by a warm fermentation (25 – 26 °C) with a total maceration of fifteen, 5% of the wine is aged in French oak for six months. Once bottled the wine is aged for a further eight months before release
The producer –
Patagonia is considered one of Argentina’s most beautiful places and for wine makers it offers fertile soil, numerous hours of sun and abundant water. In this privileged setting Verum (Bodega Del Río Elorza) was born, a realization of a combined dream between two families – the ‘Del Rio’ family and the ‘Elorza’ family.
In 2001 the Del Rio Elorza family purchased a vineyard originally planted at the beginning of the 20th century. Planting to high density (5,500 vines/hectare) their 20 hectare site now includes Malbec, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Franc and their wines go from strength to strength. Tim Atkin MW considers Del Rio Elorza to be one of the top 25 Argentine wineries ‘to watch.’
Led by internationally renowned winemaker Alberto Antonini and local winemaker Agustin Lombroni, their experience and understanding of this unique Patagonian terroir impart great personality in the wines.
Drink with –
As this wine is on the more mid-weight style of Pinot Noir with lovely expressions of red and purple fruits, this would work particularly well with duck and mild game dishes.
