"The 2020 Family Reserve Pinot Noir outshines many of its peers, internationally as well, because of its excellent value, even if the price tag suggests this wine calls for a bit more attention once the cork has been popped. This finely structured wine combines youthful, sweet red-fruited prettiness with some intriguing forest floor-driven aromatics which has slowly started to appear after a year in bottle. Fragrant rose petals and a twist of orange zest bring a lovely contrast to the spicy nutmeg and its dark graphite-like, serious core. Huge respect to the gentle hand that has allowed the fruit to maintain its delicacy of colour with a perfectly fine-tuned level of extraction allowing the vintage to show itself in such a beautifully balanced way. Light on its feet, yet with the stylish classiness expected of its underlying layers. This is not a wine to stow away for the long run. But hey, why wait for something that is so utterly beautiful right now and will remain so for the next few years? After all, how many of us really respect the maximum ageing potential of a wine? Most of them are enjoyed long before their indicated optimal drinking window."
