Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir undoubtedly produces some of the world’s best red wine, but its success very much depends on its location. It’s a delicate grape with thin skins, so too much sun exposure can be difficult. It therefore thrives in the cooler parts of Argentina, particularly in northern areas of Patagonia in the Rio Negro Valley. Some of the best Pinots from this region are noted for red fruit and mineral character, smooth, velvety tannins and good ageing potential.
