Errazuriz Wild Ferment Pinot Noir, Casablanca Valley, 2008

Tasted with Chris and Fran, 11/06/10, 14% ABV, about £12 UK retail (e.g. Majestic). From  La Escultura Estate, this is classed as a speciality wine made with 'spontaneous yeasts' from vines planted in 1996. Beautiful bright pink colour, strawberries, rosehips and toast on the nose.Lovely balance with forward fruit and soft tannins and a superb finish. Complex and elegant. from 2010. A great New World Pinot Noir with a twist. Top Burgundy it's not (in style, at least) but it certainly is great quality and excellent VFM. 18.5/20
