2020 Coteaux de Trumao 'Cruchon' Pinot Noir, Patagonia, Chile


Coteaux de Trumao is a small family winery located at the beginning of Patagonia. The winery is the project of 2 French brothers, Christian and Olivier Porte, who moved to Chile more than 30 years ago. At the beginning of the 2000s, these two Frenchmen embarked on an adventure and planted 2.5 hectares of Pinot noir in the Osorno Valley (the very South of Chile).

Destemmed berry by berry. Fermented in large, old native barrels ( from raulí / alerce) during one month. Malolactic fermentation happens while the berry are still intact resulting in carbonic maceration. No juice is extracted during the first 10 days. Then berries are stomped 3 to 4 times throughout the fermentation in order to spread the heat and extract color without extracting tannins. The wine is then pressed with a very old wooden manual cage press. Each plot is separated in pipes of 225 liters. No Filtration - No sulfites added
