Don Guerino Reserva Pinot Noir 2018


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’.




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!
