Clunia Pinot Noir

CLUN020
The Pinot Noir grape adapts well to cold climates. The vines are planted in land in Coruňa del Conde (Burgos, North Spain) where the vineyards are sited between 920 and 1,000 metres above sea level.This provides for a temperature difference between day and nigh of over 20˚C which, as long as the production is kept low, makes for outstanding conditions for the growing of the Pinot Noir. The result is the superb Clunia.

Bodegas Clunia

The Clunia vineyards are located in the province of Burgos, Castilla y León at an altitude of between 900 and 1,100 metres above the sea level. Historically they have grown two grape varieties; three hectares of Syrah, and 10 hectares of Tempranillo, however, they have now added Malbec to their repertoire. The organic composition of this land is very poor, these are limestone, clay and sandy soils with pebbles and limestone loames which allow for an optimal drainage, thus limiting production considerably –between 3,000 and 4,000Kg/hectare. The singular character of this terroir results in wines with a unique personality, only changing slightly according to the subtle variations determined by the soil of each vineyard.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby red in colour with purple hues. The aromas are intense with fresh notes of wild strawberries, raspberries and cherries. The short ageing in oak barrels gives complexity and subtle hints of spice and toffee, the Pinot Noir fruit however remains the main feature. Soft and elegant on the palate.

Food Matches

Pair with roast or grilled meat. A good accompaniment to lamb and mature cheese.
