Pinot Noir Cortijo los Aguilares
Awarded for the second time a gold medal in the 14th Mundial
du Pinot Noir, in Sierre, Switzerland, something very
unusual for a pinot noir produced in Spain, this irmly establishes
the wine as being of great quality at an international
level. The prize-winning wine (the 2010 vintage) has got a
more loral taste than previous years, as well as an unusual
and pleasing acidity point, guaranteeing a long bottle life during
which it can be enjoyed.
The three hectares of Pinot Noir vines that have been the
source of the Bodega’s highest international awards are more
than 900 metres above sea level, and the treatment they get
is rather more akin to that of a garden than a vineyard. The
harvest is always carried out in two separate phases in order
to get a balanced crop. The refrigerated maceration of the
grapes and the controlled fermentation is intended to extract
the maximum quality from this delicate variety. The second
fermentation is done in large French oak barrels in order to
conserve fully the individual character of the grape. Nine
months’ barrel ageing in the best-available quality French
oak casks completes the process.
