Montsecano Refugio Pinot Noir 2018
Montescano was founded by Julio Donoso and Alsatian native Andre Ostertag back in 2005. The duo’s geothermal, egg-shaped winery is located in Chile’s Casablanca Valley, 60 miles northwest of Santiago. Here, all farming is done biodynamically, and wines are produced exclusively in concrete eggs and stainless steel. ‘Refugio’ is hand-harvested, vinified with native yeasts and 40% stem inclusion, and aged in concrete. Notes of tart raspberries, violets, cherries, and sage dominate this smooth and mineral-driven wine. This earth-driven bottle of Pinot is sure to satisfy an array of palate preferences. Serve alongside game, roasted chicken, or mushroom-based recipes for an out-of-this-world pairing.
