2017 Montsecano "Migrante" Malbec Pinot Noir Casablanca Valley (Previously $24)

SKU #1399763

The Migrante is a uniquely South American blend, 70% Malbec and 30% Pinot Noir, produced from a single 0.9-hectare vineyard and vinified with native yeasts. Aged for 10 to 11 months in concrete before bottling, the wine displays deep black fruit and herbal notes typical of Malbec with a lithe, supple structure thanks to the Pinot Noir component of the blend. It's truly a style of wine that is made nowhere else but in South America. From the importer: "Julio Donoso and Andre Ostertag started Montsecano in 2005. They planted 4 hectares of Pinot Noir in las Dichas, Casablanca and built a small winery and cellar on the property. The vineyard is biodynamically farmed and is plowed by horse. The subterranean, geothermal winery is shaped like an egg, and they vinify exclusively with concrete egg and steel tank. Many believe that they produce two of the most highly regarded expressions of Pinot Noir in all of Chile. Julio and Andre incorporate a philosophical aspect that goes deeper than the vine and the energy is manifested on the property and in the bottle."

Chile

- Located on the western coast of South America and bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andes to the East, the Chilean wine-growing climate is similar to that of California's Napa Valley and Bordeaux. The Chilean wine industry is known for being consistently free of phylloxera, but political and economic unrest has brought its own source of disorder. The recent establishment of a free market has resuscitated the wine industry, and significant investments have been made, switching the economic focus from domestic production to exports. Chile produces roughly a quarter of the wine Argentina produces, and is known for single-varietal exports, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. It's a popular region in the U.S. known for inexpensive and tasty wine.
