MANOS NEGRAS PATAGONIA PINOT NOIR’15 – The 2015 Pinot Noir is now sourced from a district called Cervantes in the province of Rio Negro close to General Roca. Part of full clusters were used to ferment it with indigenous yeasts in cement vats, it was kept with the fine lees and bottled unoaked. There is good freshness and clean aromas of red berries with the faintest hints of earth. The palate is juicy and soft, with a silky texture and a supple finish. Pleasant and accessible, this is a great value and represents a superb entry level to the place and variety.”…….32.99
