  • Score: 93 Vintage 2016 Wine & Spirits Pilar Diaz makes this wine from a vineyard in Rapelco, near Mulchen, where the soils derive from the Andean volcanoes of Chile's south. It's a pinot noir imprinted by the cool winds, the plentiful moisture in the soils (there's no scarcity of rain in this river valley), and particularly by the trumao, the red clay formed from volcanic ash, tuff, and lava. It's a similar tannic character to what you might find in some of the pais grown on trumao just to the north, in Itata. Here it elevates the black-cherry richness of pinot noir, the tangy licorice and brisk freshness, completing the wine with that distinctive tannic detail. A fragrant, volcanic pinot noir for grilled quail. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate I hadn't tasted their Pinot for a while and was pleasantly surprised by the 2016 Tectonia Pinot Noir, produced with grapes from Bío-Bío. It is quite expressive, aromatic and floral, open, clean and balanced, with good acidity, very fine tannins and focused, clean flavors. It is nicely crafted and has a modern and clean profile with very integrated oak. 6,380 bottles were filled in June 2017, and the wine feels fresh and young. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
