Bravado, Sofía García Schwaderer Pinot Noir, Casablanca 2011
As with the Sauvignon, there is a notable and welcome emphasis here on freshness and drinkability. Leafy, earthy, red fruit scents lead into a velvety, vital flavour profile suffused with black cherry and herbs. Perhaps some of Pinot’s sensuousness has been lost in the drive for freshness but its restraint is to be commended. 17pts/20 (90/100pts)
