More information on wine critics and ratings

Origin: Coastal Limari Valley, 20 kms. Distance from the Pacific Ocean.

Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir planted without rootstock. The vineyard is 20 years old VSP trellised and Guyot pruned.

Climate: Cool Maritime climate strongly influenced by the Pacific Ocean.

Soil: Limestone soils composed of clay with a high percentage of calcium carbonate.

Winemaking:The grapes are partially destemmed while keeping a high percentage (30%) of whole clusters and undergo a cold maceration for five days. Alcoholic fermentation is spontaneous, once finished the wine was left in contact with the skins for 10 days before being racked into used Burgundian barrel where they complete malolactic fermentation.

Ageing: The wine was aged in used Burgundian barrels (228 lts.) for 12 months.

Tasting Notes:
Pale ruby red color. Perfumed aromatics of fresh red berries and cherries are combined with a smoky mineral and earthy notes. Palate is ripe and fresh, with polished soft tannins, weight in palate and a lingering finish.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91+ Points (2018)
They managed to get some fruit from the Talinay vineyard to use in the 2018 Legado Pinot Noir, and the 2019 is 100% from that limestone-rich vineyard in Limarí. I had not tasted this wine since the 2015 vintage, and the wine feels quite different, with more freshness and a chalky sensation on the palate, moderate alcohol and balanced acidity. It matured in used barriques for 11 months, and the oak is virtually imperceptible. 16,416 bottles produced.

These are characterful wines from selected single vineyards that embody the style of De Martino. La Cancha is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon and our best expression of the variety. This vineyard in Isla de Maipo was for many years a football pitch (or “cancha” in Spanish), hence its name.

An intriguing nose with wild berry, herb, spice and white pepper aromas. These aromas carry through to the palate and are complemented with refreshing acidity and fine tannins.
