What is Chilean Pinot Noir?
Pinot Noir is the world's most popular light-bodied red wine. It is loved for its red fruit, cherry and raspberry flavours, flower and spice aromas that are accentuated by a long, smooth finish. Pinot Noir is light to medium-bodied, not too dry but certainly not sweet. This is why it is a favourite all over the world. Its silky tannins grip your palate and end with a velvety, smooth finish.

What equipment do you need?

Chilean Pinot Noir pairs well with a wide range of foods. It is a great match with salmon or other fatty fish, roasted chicken or pasta dishes. It matches up nicely with delicately flavoured, washed rind cheeses and nutty medium-firm cheeses, Gruyere is a great example and Taleggio which is not too intense.
We recommend using a Vinbrite filter to clear the wine to a professional standard.
If you can leave it a few months to mature, the wine will greatly improve
