They practice the traditional Chilean technique of fermenting the grapes on taut cow hides and then pressing the juice through as a natural filter. You would expect this to give the wines an overwhelming barnyard quality but instead it leaves just a pleasant leathery aroma, and a savory quality to the wine. These old, own-rooted Pinot Noir vines display a lightness you only expect from cooler climates, and an enticing mix of dusty soil and crunchy red fruit. - Chambers Street Wines
