Pasarisa Patagonian Pinot Noir
Pasarisa Patagonian Pinot Noir is a fresh, bright, delicate and floral Pinot Noir. On the nose there are ripe cherries, strawberries, spices and flowers. The plate is medium-bodied with crisp red fruit, smooth supple tannins and savoury vanilla and chocolate on the finish from the French oak maturation.
Laura Catena is a fourth generation winemaker whose family pioneered the revival of Malbec. When her great grandfather Nicola Catena arrived in Mendoza from Italy in 1902, he believed he had found the promised land. Until then, Malbec had been used only in blending, but Nicola saw the potential for something far greater. He pioneered its revival, putting Mendoza on the map, and contributed to the global reputation that Argentinean Malbec enjoys today.
In this same spirit of adventure, Laura Catena began exploring the potential of Argentina’s other promising regions, founding the Catena Institute of Wine in 1995. She was convinced that grapes grown in these stark and varied microclimates would create something truly remarkable, and her project Pasarisa is a celebration of these terroirs. The name combines those of Patagonia, Salta and La Rioja, and highlights their varied history, culture and wine styles.
Patagonia is one of the most sparsely populated regions in the world, but one of the richest in wildlife. You can walk for miles without seeing a single person, but you are guaranteed to encounter deer, sheep, foxes and beautiful wild flowers. Its stunning lakes, forest and mountains are reminiscent of Switzerland. The cool temperature is ideal for early-ripening varieties such as Merlot and Pinot Noir, while windy conditions blow away pests, keeping vines healthy and strong.
