Quinta de Sant'Ana Pinot Noir 2010

I’ve written before about this Pinot Noir. Its debut vintage, 2009, impressed me, and can be found online at a bargain price of £12. This follow-up is equally convincing. A really nice wine. I likened the 2009 to a Marlborough Pinot Noir; I notice that this time I’ve likened it to a Martinborough Pinot Noir.

14% alcohol. Sweetly aromatic black cherry and berry fruit nose is ripe with some fine spicy notes. The palate is ripe, smooth and slightly sappy with supple cherry and berry fruits. There’s some nice, spicy, fine-grained structure here. Warm and rich, but also quite elegant. It reminds me of Martinborough Pinot Noir in terms of style. 90/100
