Tasting Notes

Earthy Burgundian-style Pinot Noir from the the Casablanca Valley of Chile. Light on its feet with delicate red fruits and forest floor minerality. Clava spends a short amount of time in French Oak in order to focus on the pure expression of fruit grown in this cool-climate valley.

Here the berried cherried fruit is bright and fresh; underlying that is a bramble earthiness and structure that complements the fruit perfectly. I drink this with a slight chill, and it pairs nicely with goat cheese.
