Standout Chilean Pinot Noir from a great estate.
Casa Marin is a boutique and family run winery established in 2000, and is located in Lo Abarca, part of the San Antonio Valley in Aconcagua about 4km from the coast and was founded by María Luz Marín, who fought to create an innovative winery that expresses the land and terroir through her fine wines. The first harvest was vinified in 2003 and this marked the beginning of an innovative and radical project of wine making in Chile. In 2010, the Cipreses Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc was recognised as the Best Sauvignon Blanc in the world, and all of her wines, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Sauvignon Gris - are highly regarded throughout the world and she is now backed by her son, Felipe, a winemaker who shares the same passion and conviction to realize his mother's dream.
Tasting Note: Aromas of bright cherry and red berry with hints of cool climate cranberry framed in whips of smoky peat hearth fire. Flavours are bright, with firm acid structure supporting the same fruit tones perceptible in the aroma—very persistent! Finish lingers with long, late acid backbone carrying the red berry late into the aftertaste.
