Chile has won many friends with its plump, ripe, supple reds. This delicious example comes from the Doña Javiera Estate which only produces wines using hand-harvested fruit from its own vineyards.
Dona Javiera is located at El Monte, 50 km west of Santiago, and benefiting from the cooling Pacific breezes. Winemaker Solminihac ensures his wines have an impressive purity of fruit, delicate aromas and excellent structure, delivering exceptional value for money.
The cool climate of the Casablanca Valley is one of the few places, outside Burgundy where one may expect Pinot Noir to perform well. And perform well it most certainly does here; the Hermosa Pinot Noir is bright of hue, with an attractive Morello Cherry spicy nose and a palate which combines bright acidity and silky red-fruits. An impressive effort, not quite Burgundy, of course, but with many redeeming features, only one of which is the lack of a Burgundian price-tag.
