Avontuur Minelli Pinot Noir Reserve 2014
Deeper and denser than many Pinot Noirs. The nose is weighty and offers winter red berries and cherries, with a whiff of spice. The wine is bright at first with fresh acidity and then opens and smooths with silky fruits. It is on the muscular side for a Pinot, but the oak is deftly handled with a lingering and haunting fruit intensity on the finish. Medium-bodied. A serious, perfumed wine with spice still in evidence 10 minutes after swallowing.
