Santa Carolina Reserva Pinot Noir Leyda Estate 2018

Valle de Leyda, Valle de San Antonio, Region de Aconcagua, ChileWe love what winemaker Alejandro Wedeles is doing with this way-too-affordable pinot noir (clones 777 and 667) made in a terrific year. The fruit comes off the cool hillsides of the Coastal Mountain Range, mostly isolated from any warm inland air, and making the growing season long and slow. You can taste it in the is pinot. Juicy and succulent, it is packed with raspberries, cherries, cedar, and pepper that keeps on coming. Fresh, mouth-filling, affordable, and well, what are you waiting for, back up the truck. It is handpicked and 10 percent barrel-aged for six months.Tasted: 01 July 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 13.99 BCLS SK 15.60 SaskLiquor MB 12.99 Manitoba Liquor Mart NL 15.90 NLLC Producer: ViƱa Santa CarolinaDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
