El Capo Pinot Noir Bio Bio (Organic) - Light ruby red in colour with aromas of fresh strawberries accompanied by subtle notes of spices and a touch of minerality. The medium bodied palate is elegant, delicate and fresh with juicy sour cherry flavours balanced with ripe tannins and a long finish.

Ideal with fish and shellfish cooked with creamy sauces or butter. Also it pairs well with white meats such as chicken or turkey and as aperitif served with ham, such as Serrano or Prosciutto. It is an excellent accompaniment to sushi.

The Bio Bio has a moderate humid Mediterranean climate with warm days and cool nights prolonging the growing season. Average rainfall is among highest of all Chilean wine valleys The Bio Bio’s higher rainfall, strong winds and broader extremes make for more challenging conditions than those of Chile’s more northerly regions. Vine growing here requires more patience, skill and nerve than in other valleys. The Pinot grows on a red clay soil here. The pressing is at low temperature to extract colour and aromas but no harsh tannins. The fermentation is relatively cool with gentle pumpovers. After fermentation is finished, 10% of the blend is aged for 6 months in French oak to give more complexity to the wine.
