Queulat Single Vineyard wines are the creation of winemaker Sergio Hormazabal, the fruit of his passion and commitment to excellence, conceived from the very beginning with fine cuisine in mind.

These are wines that bring perfection to every occasion, elegant wines with character and balance, made even more special by an ageing regimen in French oak. Seven varietals are showcased at their best, creating infinite possibilities for foodpairing. Thus, we are able to achieve that moment of perfect balance.

Queulat wines take their name from southern Chile's most spectacular hanging glacier, a sight that is both imposing and elegant. Extensive research on terroir in Casablanca(for whites and Pinot Noir) and in the Maipo Valley (for reds) allows us to highlight every variety at its best, with oak as a backdrop for each grape's unique personality.

Pinot Noir / 2011

Tasting Notes

This Pinot Noir from the Casablanca valley has a deep cherry-red colour with red-ruby notes. It exhibits an elegant bouquet, with all the aromas typical of this variety, such as roses and fresh fruits like strawberries and morello cherries. All this is enhanced with spicy notes and delicate touches of vanilla from the barrel aging. In mouth it offers a delicate body with a good attack, fresh with a balanced acidity, and soft tannins that deliver greater complexity to its structure. A good persistence in which notes of fresh fruits, vanilla and spices reappear.

Best enjoyed at a temperature of 13-15° C.

Foodpairing: This wine goes well with different varieties of Asian cuisine, and also with meats that have some degree of smokiness, such as chicken, turkey, pork, and fish like salmon or tuna. It is also excellent with spider crab or lobster dishes and creamy pastas or shellfish in mild sauces. Perfect for Risotto al fungi and mushroom dishes in general (portobello, shitake, white) accompanying white meats or fish such as tuna, salmon or trout.
