Treinta y Dos shows slightly reductive aromas from the barrel with toast and toffee notes over the core of wild berries. Until that vintage this wine was sourced from a vineyard planted in 1932 - hence its name - and was aged in 100% new 225-liter French oak barrels for one year. It's been in bottle for a few years now, so give it time in the decanter if you uncork one. The grapes were hand destemmed and fermented in cement. The palate shows grainy tannins and would need food. 4,898 bottles produced.||I visited Chacra and met with Piero Incisa dela Rocchetta from the Sassicaia family in Italy. His property in Río Negro, Patagonia, is devoted to the production of Pinot Noir. They have 24 hectares of vineyards, four coming into production in 2016 and the yearly output is a grand total of 120,000 bottles. The winemaker here is Han Vinding Diers of Noemía fame also in Río Negro.| There are six labels here, including a little bit of Merlot and a rosé. There are three lines of Pinot Noir, Barda, Cincuenta y Cinco and Treinta y Tres. Barda would be the entry level, fermented in cement, where some 30% to 40% of the wine matured there and rest is raised in oak barrels. In 2010 they saw the first results in the vineyard, after years of working in biodynamics since 2004. Until 2013 Barda was aged in used barrels and since that year there is 10% new oak as they stopped using new barrels for the Treinta y Dos, and the new oak is then used in entry-level wine.
