2018 Bodega Chacra Barda Pinot Noir

 

$44.99 $19.99

Winemaker Notes:

“Pure, minerally and powerful, with concentrated flavors of red plum and dried raspberry, loaded with powerful meaty notes. Sandalwood accents linger on the finish, showing caressing tannins. A perfect pairing for fish, salads and omelettes.”

Critical Acclaim:

94 points. 
“A brambly array of bright, ripe dark fruit with a lithe and juicy feel that carries a bold, deliciously fresh array of dark-cherry and blueberry flavors long on the finish. Zingy and energetic. 10 to 15 per cent stems in fermentation. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling

“The 2018 Barda saw 60% of the volume matured in concrete to keep the freshness and crunchiness of the Pinot Noir fruit in the wine, and the rest was in barrels for eight months. It’s lighter than 2017, which was very concentrated given the extremely low yields, and the wine goes back to the balance of previous years (with normal yields); there’s great harmony and purity here. The palate is fresh, the flavors are clean and pure and there is great length. There’s great energy. It has to be one of the finest vintages of Barda. This is an incredible value, a great Pinot Noir from Río Negro at a very attractive price point. 2018 saw good yields, and they were able to produce around 100,000 bottles.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
