Valle Frio, Pinot Noir, Maule, 2020

We continue to maintain that Chile makes the best sub £10 Pinots in the world. Here is the latest vintage of a hugely popular wine here. Fom vines with some age planted in higher sites in the Maule Valley, it's surprisingly concentrated for a Pinot at this price.

Lovely crushed cherry perfume. Delivering bright red fruit with pleasing fat, this shows true Pinot character. With a strawberry accented finish, this is so charming. A total winner - drink with chicken, veal, game or even the Christmas turkey! Now-2022

SVS is one of the nicest merchants to deal with. Fabulous choices of producer and wines, friendly cheerful service, keen prices and boundless enthusiasm. Top wine critics (eg Jancis Robinson) often rave about the SVS portfolio of wines. Simon and his team also have a 'philanthropic' soft spot for South African wines where the whole wine trade suffered not just an export ban on wine but a domestic one too for a while. You cannot go wrong with any wine in the portfolio. Buy with confidence.

I look to a wine merchant to explore wine regions in person and discover excellent producers. Then of course to put good information on their web site, to provide accessible and friendly advice and to make the buying process easy and reliable. SVS ticks all these boxes. I am a very satisfied customer.
