A rich Pinot with coastal influences that has world-class elegance and quality.
The influence of the sea and soil combined with slow ripening make for a deep ruby-red wine with a touch of violet and great aromatic complexity. The nose evokes ripe fruits with elegant notes of vanilla and spice from the well-integrated oak.
Ideal with lamb or game birds.
The 2019 Pinot Noir Amayna from the Leyda Valley was aged in a combination of barrels and foudres for a year. Intense ruby red in hue. The expressive nose begins with rose, cherry and hints of herb against a backdrop created by the aging process, along with a ferrous layer. Terse and grippy with mild freshness and tension. The fruity finish lingers on.Vinous June 2022
Raspberries, currants, cherries, smoke, mushrooms and sweet spices on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with sleek tannins. Creamy, round and succulent with spicy and zesty character and a delicious finish. Sustainable. Drink now.James Suckling August 2022
The aromatic nose offers red-currant and crushed pebbles aromas. This medium-bodied wine shows cherry and red-currant flavors with hints of tobacco. It has a juicy acidity, mineral texture and a lingering finish.Wine Enthusiast September 2022
The Amayna Pinot Noir blocks are planted to Dijon clones with a focus on 115 and 777. After harvest, the wine goes into a 14-day cold soak and the cap is manually punched down 3 times per day. The wine is aged 12 months in French oak, with 15% in 1st use, 45% in 2nd use, and 40% in 3rd use barrels.
