Cono Sur 'Ocio'

Pinot Noir, 2008

Chile Red

Casablanca Valley 75cl

This is Cono Sur's top Pinot Noir. Heavy bottle and individual wooden bottle case are the order of the day. Beyond the slightly grotesque over the top nature of the packaging this is a serious wine with a c40 price tag. It's a trophy winning Pinot, Burgundy inspired from low yielding vineyards and aged in French oak for 12 months. Intense nose with berry fruits, raspberry,black cherry and lots of oak and spice, really concentrated even a touch of ginger. On the palate it's a big, sweet impressive Pinot with bags of tangy berry and plum fruit, lots of integrated oak and good acidity. Impressive wine for sure, but hard to justify 40...
That ginger character on the nose shows on the palate too and i am sure it's the oak. Very interesting wine.
