2014 Bodegas Re "Pinotel - Family Vineyard" Rosé Casablanca Valley
Wine & Spirits
An eccentric blend of 95 percent Pinot Noir from Casablanca with five percent Moscatel from Maule, this creates a tremendously generous rosé, packed with floral aromas and tart red fruit. It’s light in body, rich in spicy detail.
Bodegas Re (pronounced "Ray") is a small, family owned bodega located right in the town of Casablanca, in the heart of the Casablanca Valley. Pablo Morandé Debordes is definitely producing some of the most adventurous, interesting and delicious wines in Chile right now. He has some great raw material to work with: the oldest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir plantings in Casablanca and beautiful, old (generally 60+ year-old) dry farmed vines nestled amongst the steep slopes of the coastal range in Chile's Maule Valley. "Pinotel" is a blend of Casablanca Valley Pinot Noir, planted 12 miles from the Pacific coast, and 65 year old Moscatel Roso, dry farmed in the Maule Valley. This is bright, crisp rosé, that has surprising depth of flavor, satiny texture and length. It finishes nicely dry and is all too easy to drink! (Joe Manekin, K&L Chilean wine buyer)
