Notes from the Winemaker:
Full-bodied and deep, Pintas shows spicy and floral aromas and flavors of blackberry and dark chocolate. Ripe, round, and balanced with notable acidity, it has fine tannins and a long, persistent finish.

This wine is sourced from the 80-year-old Pintas vineyard, which contains a field blend of over 35 indigenous varieties. The grapes are carefully selected and foot trodden in traditional granite lagares during the maceration and fermentation process. The wine is then aged for 22 months in 70% new and 30% second-passage French oak barriques.

About the Vineyard:
87 years old vineyard with a field blend of more than 40 different indigenous grape varieties.

Wine Production:
The harvest was planned for the second week of September in perfect weather conditions. All grapes previously selected and de-stemmed were foot trodden in stone lagares during all the fermentation process (10 days). The aging and malolactic fermentation was developed in french oak barrels during 20 months.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points & #92 Top 100 of 2020 - Wine Spectator Magazine (2017 Vintage):
A ripe and juicy note of Jonagold apple is layered with hints of beeswax, chive blossom and almond skin in this well-cut, medium-bodied white, which is lightly chalky in texture, with a saline-laced finish. Drink now through 2023. 9,900 cases made, 1,250 cases imported." - AN (44112)
