Natalie's Score: 93/100

A juicy, joyous Chilean Pinot Noir from an extraordinary producer. Layers of silky textured fleshy ripe raspberries and strawberries with some spice. The grapes are sourced from two blocks in the vineyard that enjoy a warmer, southern exposure versus the typical cooler positioning at this winery. Classic with a long finish. Pair with veal or grilled chicken.

Pinot Noir food pairings: rack of lamb, grilled pork sausages, veal Porterhouse.

Reviews and Ratings

From Viña Leyda, Las Brisas 2016 is a single-vineyard Pinot Noir made from grapes sourced from the Leyda Valley wine region and selected from the two cooler-climate Pinot Noir blocks. This PN is dry, fresh with ripe red berries, pink florals, cake spice flavours with a clean mineral finish. Nicely done! Enjoy now and for the next three years. Pair with grilled lamb chops. - Community Wine Reviews
