SOL de SOL Pinot NoirViña Aquitania
In 2000, Felipe de Solminihac and the Bordeaux ‘musketeers’ of Viña Aquitania found a southern Chilean terroir offering soils which allowed Pinot Noir to express itself to the full. The success of the SoldeSol experiment helped to spur on the development of Chilean wine. Born in the cool Malleco Valley, this wine offers intense red fruit aromas. The period of aging in French oak barrels for ten months maintains its complexity, good balance, and lingering finish.
