It starts with 100% Pinot Noir grapes. Grown in soil that is perfect for sparkling wine and harvested in the early morning hours to keep the cool temperature. Destemmed and then crushed. Housed cold for 30 days in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts. Then moved to secondary fermentation in small stainless-steel tanks and finished with lees contact for 90 days. The result is a sparkling Pinot Noir that stands out from the rest. The winemakers at Gauchezco Wines located in Mendoza, Argentina love what they do. A family-owned winery, Gauchezco is home to some of the oldest vines in their surrounding area of Maipu and the Uco Valley. These vines are hand selected especially in all of their wines, and their new Extra Brut Pinot Noir is a fine addition to their collection.
The light rose color of their Gauchezco Pinot Noir Extra Brut sets it apart from other sparkling wines. It’s filled with persistent bubbles that are pleasing to both the eye and the palate. Fresh fruit greets the consumer upon initial inspection, and the complex taste with its smooth acidity balance will entice you for another taste. And another. And another. The Gauchezco family wants you to enjoy their new Pinot Noir with your own family. Just make sure there is enough to go around.
