TASTING NOTE

Salamander Pinot Noir 2018

red wine

Our rating

8.5 /10
A remarkably good pinot noir! We were pleasantly surprised by this gem. A very well-balanced wine with a lovely and broad aroma palate of fruity, herbal and earthy characteristics. We smell a lot of red fruits, thyme, scents of pine, leather and roses. The wine has a quite intense flavour intensity. Also in the taste a lot of red fruits (cranberries!), herbs de provence, cedar wood, light notes of graphite and the wonderful scent of pine forest. Good to combine with charcuterie, salad with duck breast and cranberry compote or, very classic, with pheasant. We want more of this! Can I get another refill please?

Detailed Tasting Notes

Wine tasting: 26 Apr 2021
Appearance
A clear, ruby-colored wine with medium- color intensity and some legs visible on the glass.
Nose
The wine has a clean, developing nose with medium aroma intensity and fruity, floral, earthy and herbaceous characteristics. It has a lovely and broad bouquet of cedar wood, fruity, spicy, and earthy characteristics. We smell cranberries, red cherries, strawberries, thyme, light leather scent, and scents of pine and roses.
Palate
A dry wine with medium+ acidity. It is a bit higher in alcohol than regular (medium+ with 13,2%). The wine is medium-bodied with medium+ flavor intensity. It has low tannins and a medium+ length. Flavors show fruity and vegetal characteristics, we taste a broad aroma palate of red fruits (cranberries, strawberries, raspberries) rosemary and bay leaf, pine needles/ resin, cedar wood and light notes of graphite.
Quality Assessment
The wine is well-balanced. The cedar wood is still a bit separate from the fruit, but given the low tannins, we recommend to drink it now; the wine is not suitable for ageing. A very good wine!
