atamisque serbal pinot noir

serbal pinot noir 2022


Slowly but surely, Argentine Pinot Noir starts to be taken seriously, and not only those from Patagonia. This delicious offering from Atamisque’s own Uco Valley vines fits the Serbal ethos perfectly – don’t spoil a lovely young wine with oak! – it is all about fruit and pure varietal character. There is also an attractive plumpness and texture on the mid palate that you don’t often see in wines in this price range. There’s a way to go before the Argentines are up there with Marlborough et al, perhaps, but this definitely kicks your lower end Burgundy into the long grass. It simply could not be made from anything other than Pinot Noir and you cannot say that about a lot of South American examples.

“Aimed at the Pinot Noir drinker who doesn’t want to pay Grand Cru (or even village level) prices, this juicy, charming, unoaked red is sweet, supple and very attractive, with refreshing acidity and raspberry and wild strawberry fruit.”
