" Colour: Deep ruby. Aroma: Intense and elegant nose with fresh notes of strawberries and violets. Mouth: Balanced, fresh, with an agreeable finish. Gaseritif. Its freshness makes it a suitable accompaniment to salads, lean fish, fresh cheese, white meats and Japanese cuisine. Potential: Can be stored for 1 to 3 years.
100% Pinot Noir grown on alluvial soils over clay and gravel. The canopies are lush and protect the delicate pinot from the sunny summers of the Cholqui Valley. Weeks before harvest, the canopies are trimmed to optimize the grape cluster maturity and then picked by hand. The wine is aged 6 months in French oak casks before release.
Pinot Noir, Reserve
Pinot Noir 100%.
Origin: Cholqui Valley. Maipo Valley. Chile.
Soil: Alluvial in origin, the first metre of depth is of a clayish consistency, with gravel and stone deeper down.
Vines: While the grapes are green, the vines are subject to minimum upkeep in order not to overexpose the clusters to light and thus maintain all the freshness of the grape.
Only in the last days before harvesting, the leaves are pruned lightly to allow the clusters to achieve their ideal maturity, but always ensuring an appropriate degree of freshness." ~ Winery notes
Tres PalaciosView all from Tres Palacios
The Viña Tres Palacios winery and vineyards are located in the Cholqui sector of the Maipo Valley, 16 km (10 miles) from the city of Melipilla. Cholqui is a closed valley 9 km (5.6 miles) south of the Maipo River, although it is separated from it by a chain of hills that surrounds the area to the north, east, and south. The Horcon de Piedra Mountain, one of the highest peaks in the Coastal Mountain Range, lies toward the eastern end of the valley. The western side is open to the influence of the Pacific Ocean 30 km (25 miles) away, and cooling breezes from the sea and inter-mountain circulation refresh the vineyards in the summer. Tres Palacios is the only winery in the Cholqui Valley and all of the wines are estate produced.
