Wapisa Pinot Noir 2020

Availability: In stock

fresh raspberry, dried rose petal, cherry pit, and black tea


Pinot Noir is something of an anomaly in Argentina, as most of the country’s wine growing regions are far too hot to successfully cultivate the variety. Even in Patagonia, the inland vineyards of the Rio Negro can be too warm for Pinot Noir production! One of the reasons Patricia chose to cultivate wine closer to the coast was to grow cooler-climate varieties, such as this Pinot Noir and the Sauvignon Blanc listed above. The limestone soils of her estate vineyard and cool breezes from the Atlantic create an ideal growing environment for this unlikely star of the region. Like all of the Wapisa reds, this wine is sustainably farmed, harvested by hand, and spends roughly 8 months in gently used oak barrels before bottling.

When you open this wine, you will want to serve it slightly chilled, around 55-60 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition, it will benefit from decanting up to half an hour. Drink now through 2025 with cedar plank grilled salmon, fried calamari, or pasta puttanesca.
