No reviews

Barda Pinot Noir is made from grapes from old vines that have not found their way through the eye of the needle to the single vineyard wines Treinta y Dos and Cincuenta y Cinco. Barda is characterized by harmony, elegance and intensity. Pinot Noir from South America hardly gets better in this class!

Wine Advocate 93 points The 2021 Barda has moderate ripeness and alcohol (12.5%) while retaining very good freshness. After fermenting with some 15% full clusters in concrete with indigenous yeasts, 60% of the volume matured in French oak barrels (10% of them new), usually the more structured lots, while the rest was kept in concrete (the lighter lots) to keep the freshness and crunchiness of Pinot Noir. It was conceived as an easy-to-drink wine from their younger vines, but it has more depth than just that and it's quite versatile with food. 2021 was a cooler year, with frost in the winter that killed all the bugs, and they had a good crop (they usually get 35 to 50 hectoliters per hectare, maybe a little higher for Barda). Best after 2022. Rating: 93+James Suckling 93 points Plenty of orange peel and pomegranate to the dark strawberry and raspberry aromas. Medium-bodied with a solid core of fruit and fine tannins, which come together nicely and energetically at the finish. Drink and enjoy.
