Maycas del Limarí Limestone Coast Reserva Especial Pinot Noir 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  511105

The 2016 Reserva Especial Pinot Noir was cropped from a cooler, late harvest year, and as a result, it's a leaner wine than the 2015. Some 10% whole clusters were used for the fermentation. The élevage was in 20% new French barriques and lasted for one year. I caught the wine just before being bottled, but what I saw was the final blend. This is very much in line with the style of the 2015, perhaps with a little less ripeness and some more austerity. This still feels very young. I think the quality level is very similar to the 2015. Drink Date: 2018-2021. Score - 90-91. (Luis Gutiérrez,, April 28, 2017)
