VIÑA PROGRESO Overground Pinot Noir
So often we find southern hemisphere Pinot dark and over-extracted and thus lacking typicity. Not so here. The nose is distinctly Pinot, with lots of fragrant red fruits, then there are enchanting notes of mushroom, soft cheese and even a touch of almond. The texture in the mouth is excellent; fresh and lean with well-balanced acidity to complement the fruit. The wine has a wild, untamed quality that we like very much and along with the other varietals in this range, it shows there is so much more to Uruguay than Tannat.
