Pinot Noir Reserva, Zapallares, San Antonio
This gives me a real Zap - a GOOD Zap!
Tastes like: Cherry. Raspberry. Savoury. Smoky.
Dom, one of our founders, says Chile is one of the most mesmerising places he's visited on his wine journey so far... and we're all in agreement that it produces some tip-top Pinot Noir.
Something about the undulating hills of the San Antonio Valley – cooled by maritime influences and morning mists – gives this noble grape a distinctive smoky, meatiness.
Juicy, easy drinking and with just a touch of oak, elegant tannins and a sophisticated finish.

"Umami and smoky hints overlying a core of red fruits. Intense but approachable."
