Bodega Familia Schroeder is the fruit of the effort of a family of entrepreneurs who made their dream come true. In 2001, Herman Heinz Teodoro Schroeder, the son of pioneering German immigrants in Patagonia, decided to invest in vineyards with his children. Patagonia is one of the most southerly wine growing regions in the world and characterised by its unique microclimate and cooler air that creates a more elegant style of New World wine. This elegant Pinot has a lifted nose of raspberry, redcurrant and a touch of black pepper. The palate is smooth, easy going and balanced with its soft tannins and crisp acidity that creates a crunchy and fruit-forward wine. This moriesh Pinot would benefit from a slight chilling.
Robin says "Patagonia is emerging as a new and exciting region within Argentina and has it been attracting international attention only in the last decade or so. More cooler climate in nature, it produces fresher, lighter styled wines such as Alpataco's poised Pinot Noir. A lovely wine for those who appreciate more lacy styles that are focused on fruit."
