Santa Alba Reserve Pinot Noir 2019
A cracking Pinot Noir at a very reasonable price, one of our best discoveries.
Cherries, wild berries and a note of cinnamon 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 covered in chocolate & vanilla ice cream can all be found in this superbly crafted wine. One for drinking now.
Santiago Achurra Larrain founded the winery in 1961 and alongside new generations of his family, has grown the winery to be among Chile’s top 20 producers. Winemaking is led by Benoit Fitte, who left his native France to join the winery in 2001.
The vineyards are located in the Curico and Maule Valley’s, where varied soils and a mild-Mediterranean-like climate with dry summers, radiant days and cool nights help the grapes attain the maximum potential.
