"Purple hued Pinot, ready now. Founded in 1880 in the Maipo Valley, Chile the wine estate of Santa Rita is most well known as one of the first to plant Pinot Noir in the region. With all this experience under their belt it’s no wonder even their entry level wines, like the 120 Series, are of great quality. The grapes for the 2017 vintage were picked in March and take to be cold fermented, retaining all their colour and flavours. There’s a touch of oak treatment but really, it’s all about the fresh fruit flavours like red cherries, dark plums and a hint of strawberry. Drink now, with lightly seared tuna, tomato-based pasta or an indulgent pork belly." - 17/20, Wine Central Tasting Panel

You'll be hard pressed to find a Chilean Pinot of this value! Lively ruby red with a perfumed nose of red berries such as raspberries and strawberries, as well as cherries. Vanilla and leather also rears its head. This Chilean Pinot Noir is an excellent value fresh, fruity Pinot and makes for a great option over the Summer. Medium bodied, delicate, with a good depth and a refreshing finish.

The 120 Series is an internationally popular and best-selling collection of wines that recalls the heroes of a pivotal event in Chile’s successful 19th century struggle to overthrow Spanish rule. History relates that in the early 1800s Dona Paula Jaraquemada, then proprietor of the Santa Rita manor house and estate near the Chilean capital of Santiago, famously gave refuge in the cellars of her property to 120 Chilean patriots. When a brigade of Spanish soldiers arrived at the expansive one-story ranch house in search the band of rebels, the feisty matriarch stated she would rather see the Spanish burn the property to the ground, with her inside, then let them step foot within her family home. Thus it was that band of 120 men lived on to fight another day.
