Description

Chacra is located in the Rio Negro Valley of northern Patagonia, 620 miles south of Buenos Aires. It is roughly equidistant from the Andes and the Atlantic. In 2004, Piero Incisa della Rocchetta of the renowned winemaking family responsible for the creation and success of Tenuta San Guido (Sassicaia), purchased the first of vineyard land, which is now Chacra. At the time the property contained an existing, albeit abandoned vineyard planted over seventy years ago in 1932. Piero was called from his multigenerational Italian winemaking family to the southern hemisphere, compelled by the goal to produce world-class Pinot Noir from uncharted territory.

This singular vineyard at Chacra is of thick, pure, gnarled Pinot Noir vines, plants from their own rootstock producing tiny bunches of small, concentrated berries which are harvested by hand. No automation or mechanization is employed at any stage of the production process. The grapes are refrigerated to preserve the freshness of their fruit, and then hand de-stemmed and sorted before being moved to cement tanks for fermentation.

The 2018 Barda saw 60% of the volume matured in concrete to keep the freshness and crunchiness of the Pinot Noir fruit in the wine, and the rest was in barrels for eight months. It's lighter than 2017, which was very concentrated given the extremely low yields, and the wine goes back to the balance of previous years (with normal yields); there's great harmony and purity here. The palate is fresh, the flavors are clean and pure and there is great length. There's great energy. It has to be one of the finest vintages of Barda. This is an incredible value, a great Pinot Noir from Río Negro at a very attractive price point. 2018 saw good yields, and they were able to produce around 100,000 bottles.
