Here is what we’ll be tasting:
Pinto Pinot Noir Argentina 2016
Savoury, medium-bodied, fresh, juicy, light and lovely Pinot Noir from the region of Patagonia. There is a lot to love about this for its juicy simplicity. This is the most elusive grape. It is relatively early ripening and extremely sensitive to terroir.
Milaman Estate Reserve Pinot Noir 2015
Attractive nose, good complexity, red fruits like raspberries and cherries well accompanied by touches of spicy and floral tones. Well balanced acidity gives this wine juicy. Medium bodied, rounded and soft with a long and pleasant aftertaste. It is a wine to enjoy now but it will improve in the bottle. .
Low yield vines. Controlled deficit irrigation regime. Careful viticultural management searching for the proper ripeness of the tannins and avoiding green flavours. Low yields and good 15% of the blend aged in second use barrels during 4 months. 13.5% vol.
