In 1993 founders Francisco Achurra and Patricio Larrain began searching for new terroirs in which they could produce a wider range of varieties and styles. ‘Alto Roble’ means ‘tall oak tree’, representing strength, stability and nobility, something they aim to reflect in their wines.
Winemaking is led by Eloísa Uribe, she has a vast experience including several years in Sonoma Valley and has ben working at Alto Roble exclusively since 2002
Tasting Note: Cherries, wild berries and a note of cinnamon laced smoke all appear on the alluring and inviting nose of this Pinot Noir. The palate is elegant and has just a touch of weight, fine smoky tannins, dark cherries with a hint of chocolate and subtle vanilla can all be found in this superbly crafted wine.
