Vina Valdivieso Reserva Pinot Noir 2009 (Casablanca Valley)

Tasted 8/9/11. 14.5% ABV. About £9.99 UK retail. Presented by winemaker Brett Jackson to the Chelsea and Fulham Wine Society at My Dining Room, SW6.
I tasted this before in March but I found this bottle lighter. It was a light pink colour, with a full and strawberry fruit nose but rather lacking in body. Brett said these vines were only 5 years old, so I think this wine is very much for early drinking and it's a 'work in progress'. This bottle was less distinctive than the same wine I had just 6 months ago. From 2011, drink now. 14/20
