Don Guerino Reserva Pinot Noir 2018

£15.00

As befits an outstanding vintage, this 2018 Pinot Noir is robust and quite weighty, although still with trademark acidity and red berry fruit, making it an ideal ‘food wine’.

 

 

Description

ABV: 13.5%

APPEARANCE: Mid-garnet colour, some ageing on rim

AROMAS: Lightly perfumed summer berry fruit, underscored by more earthy and herbaceous notes

TASTE: Ripe damson, quince and touch of strawberry fruit; surprisingly bold and ‘meaty’; shows some traces of spice and also a hint of vanilla as a result of short stint in French oak barrels. Dry with fresh acidity; medium to full-bodied and a lingering finish

FOOD PAIRING: Serve with white meats, duck, goose, game or mushroom-based dishes; may also be suitable with heavier red meats

OVERALL: A gutsy PN for those who appreciate this most noble of grape varieties!
