Undurraga Sibaris Pinot Noir Gran Reserva

Undurraga Sibaris Pinot Noir Gran Reserva 2018

Valle de Leyda, Valle de San Antonio, Region de Aconcagua, ChileAs the years tick by, it is clear the world is catching up to Burgundy when it comes to pinot noir. It's not that they are creating Côte d'Or reds that rival the French standard, but they are making wines that respect the grape, and they seem to be getting the most out of their terroir. Case in point, Sibaris 2018. This Leyda Valley pinot noir opens with earthy, forest floor that underlies a sweet pinot entry full of ripe, cherry before finishing with a touch of poultry spice. Clean, fleshy and at 13.5 percent alcohol, very drinkable. Good value at $18.Tasted: 01 November 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 17.49 BCLS Producer: Viña UndurragaDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
