Labbe Savoie Rose pk1

SKU: Y193707
Chile, Maule Valley
100% Pinot Noir
"The 2020 Cenizas de Laberinto Pinot Noir was produced with grapes from the cooler part of their vineyards by the Lago Colbún in Maule on volcanic ash soils. The wine has freshness and is fruit-driven, with moderate ripeness and 12.7% alcohol. It fermented with 30% full clusters in concrete with indigenous yeasts and matured in used 400-liter French oak barrels for eight months. It's very pale and has a delicate profile, young, primary and fruit-driven. Tirado has shortened the time in barrel and selected larger and used ones, and he feels the wine has more fruit and keeps better structure. It has bright cherry fruit and a medium-bodied palate with austerity, a constant in the wines here. It doesn't show any heat. 6,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2021.
Laberinto is the project from winemaker Rafa Tirado in a cooler part of Maule, in Colbùn, where he has started with regenerative viticulture and has taken some steps in that direction, like keeping 75% of the property with native forest. Tirado is in the process of getting organic certification for his vineyards and has biodiversity and recycling as important priorities in his life project. He now produces 54,000 bottles, some of the best values in Chile and one of the finest Sauvignon Blancs." - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate
