Chatto Mania Pinot Noir 2017

3rd July 2018
Quite sophisticated... 92+ Points

"Made by Jim Chatto from a blend of Tamar, East Coast and Huon vineyards. The back label quotes Andre Tchelistcheff – “God made Cabernet: the Devil made Pinot Noir.” Nebbiolo, of course, was made through the gradual process of evolution…
Savoury styling with some smokiness, cherry and strawberry, a bit of lift, some rosiness and spice. It’s fine and leaner in style, but does deliver flavour, has a pleasing sort of ‘mineral’ feel to the acidity, very fine dusty tannin, and smoky autumn leaf and roses trailing in the finish. Restrained, and quite sophisticated. Feels pretty young right now, and suspect it has a bit more to come."

Rated: 92+ Points
