We tasted and loved this beautiful Pinot Noir from Argentina's Patagonia region. Made from 100% estate-bottled, biodynamic fruit from pre-phylloxera vines, Barda Pinot is crafted from two old vineyards planted in 1932 and 1955, and two more vineyards planted 20+ years ago. Harvested and 100% de-stemmed by hand, Barda undergoes cold maceration for approximately three days, followed by daily punch downs to maximize extraction of color, fruit and tannins. A fermentation of 2-3 weeks follows, then the wine is gravity-fed into French barrels to age for 11 months. Barda is bottled 100% natural and unfiltered. Look for intense yet delicate aromas of red fruits, spices and flowers. distinctly articulating itself as a Pinot Noir, followed by a deep, yet fresh palate of medium body, silky texture and a long, satisfying finish. Serve with salmon, roasted chicken, baby lamb chops or even with Filet Mignon.

The Wine Advocate reports : I visited Chacra and met with Piero Incisa dela Rocchetta from the Sassicaia family in Italy. His property in Río Negro, Patagonia, is devoted to the production of Pinot Noir. The winemaker here is Han Vinding Diers of Noemía fame also in Río Negro. There are three lines of Pinot Noir: Barda, Cincuenta y Cinco and Treinta y Tres. Barda is the entry level, fermented in 60-70% oak barrels and 30-40% cement. In 2010 they saw the first results in the vineyard, after years of working in biodynamics since 2004. These are the best Pinot Noirs from Argentina. Bravo Piero and Hans!'

James SucklingI love the forest-fruit, must and wet-earth character here. Perfumed. Medium body, very fine round tannins and intense, crushed stones. Hints of cedar and hazelnuts. Crunchy. Always an exciting pinot noir from Argentina.
