2017 Leyda Valley Pinot Noir, Chile
Chiles most underacknowledged varietal, Pinot Noir. The mountains, the coastal air, the dry plains, give Pinot Noir the consistency of climate it needs to flourish here.
Boya brings the best example of it to you in their wine. Boya was created by the Garcés Silva family, pioneers of the coastal Leyda Valley in Chile. Boya in Spanish means “buoy” – an appropriate name for a wine coming from vineyard blocks that overlook the Pacific Ocean.
Intense nose of fresh fruits like strawberry, red cherries and plenty of bouncy floral notes like violets and roses. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a good natural acidity and fresh berry fruits towards the finish entice and delight the tastebuds. It is well balanced, clean and expressive. A must try for red wine aficionados or those transitioning into red.
