Product description

The wines of Ramón Saavedra defy expectations. As they are from the arid and hot south of Spain, one might expect them to be high alcohol and extracted; instead, they are bright, structured, and fresh. The vineyards are on the northern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, in Cortes y Graena, at elevations of 800-1000 meters, and they are largely on sheltered, north-facing slopes. These factors combine to produce an intense diurnal shift: temperatures are aggressively hot during the day but cool at night, which moderates ripening and allows for more balanced, fresher wines. Pi Noir is back, and it's fresher, livelier, and juicier than last year! Vibrant body, with herbs and bright red fruit on the palate, with some spice, and weighing in at a pleasant 11.5%. The grapes see 3-5 days of gentle maceration and the wine is aged in stainless steel. High altitude vineyards provide ample acidity to frame the material and keep the alcohol low. This is a singular expression of Pinot Noir.
