From Chile’s northernmost winery in the remarkable Elqui Valley, this is a sumptuous, fruit filled, oak aged red. The hand picked Pinot Noir fruit sings out with bright summer berry notes, while gentle ageing in French oak lends long, toasty spice.

Silky and bounding with ripe summer fruits and toasty spice maturity
Smoky summer berry and cherry aromas with a hint of spice
Alta Tierra comes from a winery that won a Trophy in its inaugural vintage. That was before anyone in the trade had ever heard of the Elqui Valley. It lies next door to the Atacama desert and used to grow grapes for pisco. Then Italian Giorgio Flessati and his Chilean cousin Aldo Olivier thought: why not get the same brilliant flavour in wine. The secret of the region is its incredible purity of light (hence why some of the world’s most important telescopes are based there) and its large diurnal temperature difference – hot sunny days and very cold nights produce terrific flavour in the grapes. Just taste this Pinot Noir – intense summer berry and cherry flavours with toasty spice from ageing in French oak. Mushroom risotto or duck – ideal!
"This is by far the best Pinot Noir under £20 I have tasted"
