2018 Montsecano "Refugio" Pinot Noir Casablanca Valley

SKU #1444983 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Refugio Pinot Noir also follows the line of the 2018 Montsecano. It is fresher and from a cooler vintage when the grapes were picked a little less ripe and the maceration was shortened. The nose is spectacular, a mix of wild herbs, flowers and berries, some rose petals and even a touch of citrus peel, coming through as aromatic and fresh. The palate is perhaps a tad lighter than previous vintages and perhaps a little more "natural." But it has very good complexity, developing aromas of violets with time in the glass, and it has lots of freshness and balance. (LG) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

K&L Notes

One of the leading lights of Alsace, André Ostertag is also consulting winemaker and partner at this impeccably run bio-dynamic estate is Chile's cool-climate Casablanca region. From sparse, granitic soils, the Refugio is fermented by natural yeasts with 40% stem inclusion. Producer's notes: "This 100% bio-dynamic hand harvested, single vineyard Pinot Noir is aged and fermented completely in Stainless steel and concrete egg. The wine shows bright raspberry, strawberry jam, with rose petals, violets, and a light component of baking bread. The wine is extremely vibrant with a light, glassy, soft , and smooth mid-palate. The light tannin cradles the wine and lends itself to the refreshing acidity with a long, jam influenced finish."
