Ruby red color of medium intensity. Elegant nose, with aromas of red berries and a hint of vanilla. The palate is soft, with good balance and long finish. Casas del Toqui S.A. was created in 1994 with the aim of developing and producing high quality fine wines, to be marketed both domestically and worldwide.
The vineyard says they are working to implement ISO 14000 and seems like the wine was put together by some engineers--the formulae are all correct but don't add up. Overall taste is thin with no aftertaste.
good pinot noir and good value
When placing the order for this wine I requested that shipment be delayed until after OCT. 1 due to the hot summers in FLA. THAT REQUEST WAS IGNORED, AND THE WINE QUALITY HAS SUFFERED.
Wine Maker Notes
We are committed to excellence in the management of Quality and the Environment. For our varietal wines we are using bottles from the ECO line, which are lighter because they are made with less glass, using less energy to manufacture them. Also, we changed the caps on this same line, from synthetic to eco- friendly natural corks. We have a state-of-the-art industrial wastewater plant to prevent any negative environmental impact. In the vineyard, we reincorporate our organic waste from pruning and do our best to preserve the original flora and fauna of the area. We are working to implement ISO 14000 on environmental management and have conducted studies about our carbon footprint to ensure a sustainable development of our productive process.
