About

Espinos y Cardos focuses on international varietals that are most adapted to the Chilean climate. From its home in a small winery in Curico, it creates a range from the beating heart of the country. The Santa Macarena Pinot Noir from a small coastal vineyard in San Antonio is their first single estate offering. 5km from the coast, this cool climate site produces fruit of great quality which with minimal intervention creates a wine of outstanding class. Viticulture- A single vineyard Pinot Noir from one of the most coastal vineyards in Chile in San Antonioi just 5 km from the ocean, within a small vineyard region 55 miles west of central Santiago and just south of Casablanca Valley. Morning mists and spring frosts, often associated with the Napa Valley and Bordeaux are brought from the west coast by the Humboldt current. Winemaking- Grapes are carefully selected and picked manually early in the morning . Cold maceration prior to alcoholic fermentation at 10C during 3- 4 days in order increase skin components extraction. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out at low controlled temperature ( Maximum 25C), which avoids the loss of volatile compounds (aromatic compounds). Regular pumping over to facilitate colour extraction and skin components. Aging in tank with oak to add complexity and oaky character to final wines. Final wines have a deep red- purple colour with delicate sweet red fruit flavours and aromas. Oak Treatment- Time: 6 Months; Type: French Staves; % oaked: 100; % new oak: None.
