William Cole Reserve Pinot Noir
- Vintage: 2018
- Origin: Casablanca Valley, Chile
- Taste guide: Light bodied & oaked for just 3 months; Light cherry red hue reflected in the red berry nose. Palate is bright, fresh and has smooth tannins with strawberries and raspberries abounding in lovely concentration. This tasted even more amazing on the 2nd night after opening the night before, hence let this breathe if you can.
- 75cl - 13.5% - Screwcap Opening
- Pairing: Perfect for lighter meat dishes, light cheeses and meals with tomato-based sauces. Also try with a dish like mushroom risotto.
"Our main vineyard located in the heart of Casablanca enjoys a pleasant cool climate thanks to the coastal breezes giving its short distance to the Pacific Ocean (40 km straight line). Together with its lands of alluvial origin and good permeability, the perfect “terroir” is achieved for the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varieties. Driven in vertical trellis, the 130 hectares consist of a drip irrigation system and a frost control system by water spray. As part of Tapihue wines and besides its wines from the Casablanca Valley, we have selected fields in other well known valleys such as Maipo, Colchagua, Cachapoal and Leyda".
Light-bodied, with flavours of cherry and ripe raspberry. Silky tannins on the finish. Perfect for lighter meals and tomato-based sauces. We actually chilled this pinot slightly and enjoyed during the warmer summer (2022) and it was very enjoyable, especially on the 2nd/3rd day as we only had a couple of small glasses on ‘opening night’.
