Marichal Reserve Collection Pinot Noir Blanc de Noir Chardonnay Rosé 2011

print button
download button - 17 Pts/ 20 Pts Pale partiridge-eye pinky orange. Delicately spicy red fruit. Part barrel fermented. On the palate, rich and generous but fresh too. Creamy texture with just a hint of phenolic texture. Slight plum flavour, dry and complex and powerful without being heavy or harsh. Long lightly spiced finish. Persistent but delicate red-fruit flavour. Dry, dense and finishes fresh.  

Grape Variety: 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay
Tasting Notes: This wine is light pink in colour, with soft hints of salmon and copper. The classic richness of Pinot Noir is balanced with the delicate fruit and refreshing acidity of Chardonnay. Aging the wine in oak barrels on its lees lends a mild nutty and toasty notes to the citrus, strawberry and floral flavours. It is elegant and well balanced with creamy texture and soft, lingering finish.
