Concha y Toro Amelia Pinot Noir, Limari Valley, Chile 2021

The varietal 2021 Amelia Pinot Noir was produced with grapes from Quebrada Seca in Limarí on colluvial soils with limestone. It fermented with around 40% full clusters (this has grown) in open-top vats and matured in Burgundy oak barrels, 18% of them new, for one year. It has 13.9% alcohol and a pH of 3.7. 2021 was a cooler year, and the wine shows it, even if the coastal part of Limarí cushions the effect of the warmer years (like 2020, which was a lot less warm here than in inland parts of Chile; I retasted the 2020 to check the evolution, which is great). It's crunchy and has the nervosity from the stems, floral, perfumed and elegant. It is textured and fresh, varietal, bright and young. Wine Advocate 95+
