Vinography Images: Southern Pinot

Southern Pinot
One of my greatest regrets from my trip to Chile last year was that I didn't have the time to get down to the tiny region of Biobio to check out one of the new frontiers of extreme winegrowing. One of the most southerly winegrowing regions in the world, this small, cool appellation has begun to yield some very interesting fruit, but perhaps of most interest is the Pinot Noir, shown here in all its Fall harvest glory. There aren't many wineries down in Biobio, but many top producers are starting to put in vineyards there, so it won't be long now. -- Alder Yarrow

These grapes shown are used to make Sol de Sol pinot noir by Vina Aquitania. A fantastic pinot noir from this region. Clive I strongly recommend trying this
