Sofia by Garcia Schwaderer Pinot Noir 09. Casablanca Valley, Chile.
Naked Wines £19.99 B+
Lifted red fruits, cherry, raspberries, floral, good earthy, iron filings, touch of barnyard, farmyard. Its full of red fruits on the palate, feels substantial, full mouthfeel, so generous, fat acidity which lingers and is really wide, light tannins at the back. Classy wine, seductive.
Glorioso Rioja Reserva 05
Oddbins (on offer) £6.99 B+
Plenty of fruits, red fruits, touch of spice, clove, cinnamon, star anise. Palate is settled, balanced, red fruits, plenty of nice acidity keeping it fresh, so drinkable. And at the offer price, great value.
