Reviews and Ratings

Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This lovely Pinot Noir comes from Chile’s first cool climate coastal region, the Casablanca Valley. Aromas of juicy dark fruit, coffee and vanilla lead to flavours of plum, strawberry and light pepper notes. A medium bodied wine with a smooth finish, this would pair well with roast poultry. Tasted September 18, 2018.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Crushed black cherry, iron, hung meat, green coffee, flint, and pressed red flowers. Bold but not overbearing. 90 Points.
Simon Chen rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

it's juicy but not overly sweet. Bright red fruits and acidity with some grip on the tongue. A well-made daily pinot that can pair nicely with many dishes.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

Ripe and jammy strawberry aromas, as well as vanilla, and black pepper. It is medium bodied with strawberry flavours following through on the palate, as well as tart plum. The tannins are velvety and it has espresso and black pepper notes at the finish.

Wine-Food Pairing: Braised beef.

Tasted September 2018
Indomita Gran Reserva 2016 is a medium-plus Pinot Noir with grapes sourced from the Casablanca Valley wine region. Bright red fruit, blue florals and savoury spice flavours are found on the palate. Enjoy now on its own or with grilled lamb chops. - Community Wine Reviews
