Lunita Pinot Noir

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: Argentina / Patagonia

Lunita’s grapes are completely de-stemmed and placed in small round cement vats. Because the local soils have a large component of clay, this wine is made by infusion and fermented on indigenous yeasts at temperatures that do not exceed 74 degrees Fahrenheit. It is fermented more by a process of infusion than one of extraction. The wine is then aged in its own lees in used French barrels and bottled without filtration.

tasting note

Lunita shows a beautiful floral nose with predominant notes of rose petals, its tannins are very well integrated, soft and silky, a typical trait of old engraft vineyard wines. Its structure is present without being overpowering and it displays a long finish with cherry notes and a bit of earthyness.

food pairing

Poultry, roast-beef, also stews and roasted vegetables, such as beets or other winter roots.

“I wanted to make pure, authentic Pinot Noir with its own special character—and then I found these forgotten, old vines in Patagonia….”
