Pinot Noir

Luigi Bosca · Grand Pinot Noir. La Consulta is a violet red with aromas of great varietal tipicity with hints of sweet cherries, strawberry, spices and tobacco leaves. Its round and smooth texture is surprising in the palate, with acid fruit and ripe tannins flavors which provide spirit and a long finish. Its well-integrated ageing in oak adds fullness and roundness. It has a tasty and elegantly fresh finish.

Recommended pairings

Perfect to pair with special dishes such as grilled prawns with melon, grilled endives and almond coulis, or a magret de canard with pink pepper and carrots.

Climate

Continental climate, with a wide range of temperature between day and night, and well-defined seasons which contribute to a good growth of the vines. The altitude and its microclimate are ideal for the grapes since they provide a unique character. Many hours of good sunlight.

Soil and vine

The soil this Pinot Noir comes from is alluvial and poor in organic matter as most of the soils in Mendoza. It has a loamy-sandy composition with stones near the surface and some lime material.

Winemaking

The grapes are hand picked in boxes from 18 to 20 kilograms, clusters are selected, then they are destemmed, and after that the best grains are chosen. The must is macerated in cold for 7 to 10 days at a temperature from 15°C to 18°C. Afterwards, 50% of must is fermented with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks, with continuous pillage for a smooth removal. The remaining must is fermented in 600 and 900 liter-French oak barrels that are placed on a roller system in order to achieve a manual remounting effect. Once fermentation is finished, part of the wine is aged in second use oak barrels (previously used for Chardonnay) in which malolactic conversion takes place and it is matured for 8 months. Once the ageing process is finished, it is blended with the part that has been kept in stainless steel tanks. Then it is stabilized, filtered and the final blend is bottled. It is stored in the winery for at least a year before market release.

Ageing in barrels

The wine is partially aged in French oak barrels for 8 months.

Comments by the winemaker

It is a genuine Pinot Noir from a cool area that achieved an excellent health and polyphenol concentration thanks to the dry climate, the good luminosity and the temperature range in the 2015 harvest.
