Pinot Noir Rose Finca Sol

Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir

Vineyard location
: These Pinot Noir vines thrive under the pure Patagonian sunlight in Argentina. The Rio Negro High Valley is
known for its limestone and alluvial rich soils. The grapes ripen slowly while developing rich red fruit flavors, exceptional acid
and balance.

Harvest: First week of March. The grapes are harvested carefully by hand into small bins, then delivered immediately to the
winery just 1 kilometer away from the vineyard.

: 80 Q per hectare.

: The grapes arrive at the winery in small containers to protect the integrity of the fruit. After destemming, they undergo
the process of maceration for only 30 minutes in a pneumatic press to achieve the subtle pale rose color. The juice is then
introduced into concrete vats where it is fermented at controlled temperatures (14° to 16°C) for 15-days. The wine is cold-stabilized and filtered before bottling.

Aging potential
: Ready to be enjoyed immediately, but can be aged up to 4 years in ideal temperature and humidity conditions.

Tasting notes
: The color is a soft pink tone, with light salmon notes. Intense red fruit aroma, reminiscent of cherries and strawberries. On the palate it is fresh, balanced and elegant, with an intense fruit character, and a persistent yet harmonic finish. This wine showcases the potential Patagonian Pinot Noir has to create unique Rose wines that speak of where they come from.

Centenium 2005

Blend: The winery developed this outstanding blend with our best selections of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec grapes to celebrate its 100-year anniversary, in 2009, as homage to its founder and pioneer in the Argentine Patagonia, the engineer Humberto Canale.

Vineyard location: Winery owned vineyards in General Roca, Alto Valle del Río Negro, Patagonia. The Malbec vines are 31 years old, the Merlot ones are 37 years old, and the Cabernet Franc ones are 15 years old.

Harvest: Merlot: late March, Malbec: first week of April, Cabernet Franc : late

Yield: 6.000 Kgs per hectare

Crafting: The project to elaborate a high-end wine to celebrate the century of the winery started in 2004. We pictured a wine that was a blend of the best varietals in the Argentine Patagonia, the Merlot, together with Argentina’s signature grape, the Malbec, and with a subtle addition of Cabernet Franc to give further complexity and elegance. With this idea in mind, we selected three premium plots in the vineyard, which from the pruning to the de-budding of the vines were subject to meticulous care. Throughout all the process, we not only had the crafting of the wine in mind, but also all those elements that connect us to our predecessors, such as the love for the wine and the family tradition, which has been the foundation of our family- based company along the different generations, added to the desire and effort focused on improvement and progress.
The Merlot varietal in the blend was aged in American oak casks for 18 months. The Malbec and Cabernet Franc were aged in French oak. After the final blend, the wine was bottled in September 2006, in 1500 ml magnum bottles, imported from Italy and especially chosen for the product. It was further aged in the bottles till May 2009 in temperature and humidity controlled cellars.

Ageing potential: 15 years in optimal temperature and humidity conditions.

Tasting notes:
The result of all this careful crafting is a magnificent nectar whose main characteristics are: a deep red color with pronounced purple reflections, comfiture of red and black berries on the nose, with notes of chocolate and vanilla, layered with hints of spice that give the wine an elegant complexity. It isb unctuous on the palate, with mature sweet tannins. It is an elegant and well-structured wine; the finish is long and persistent. In sum, a wine of great personality and a long life. 

Pairing notes: It is ideal to pair with any type of red meat, chicken, duck and all types of pastas.

Suggested serving temperature: 16° to 18° C

Company details

history: pioneer in patagonia wine terroir

Humberto Canale’s name is intimately connected to the growth of Argentina and the industrial development of Patagonia, a project that become real after the construction of the railway, that connected this remote, worlds Southernmost, lands with the rest of the country.

Locate in the middle of an oasis in the High Valley of Negro River, the winery has its origin in 1909. Little after the Desert Campaign (1878-1885) when his founder, Humberto Canale, settled up and helped develop the irrigation system in the area, between 1898 and 1904.
His long term vision led him to buy 200 hectares in this wild location and import the necessary equipment to develop the viticulture in the region. In 1912 vineyards were already planted and by mid XX century its image was consolidated.

By injecting a good deal of professional know how into the valley's activities he managed to promote investigation and creativity, thus allowing the world to see that the region possessed a special terroir that gave birth to different, very characteristic wines.
