Errazuriz Wild Ferment Pinot Noir
Casablanca valley, Chile, 2012
A refreshing fruit forward yet complex and elegant Chilean Pinot Noir made from grapes grown in the Casablanca Valley, just 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Floral violet notes mingle with strawberry and raspberry aromas on the nose, while subtle hints of the typical Pinot earthiness and toast are also evident from the 9 months of oak aging in Burgundian style French oak barrels. The forest fruit flavours follow through onto the silky generous palate, most notably wild strawberries and red cherries, while the gentle tannins and lively acidity make for a wine that slips down just effortlessly. A fantastic match for mushroom based dishes, duck, chicken dishes and some of the more deeply flavoured Japanese sauces such as Teriyaki.
