Zingy and energetic. 10 to 15 per cent stems in fermentation. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

It's lighter than 2017, which was very concentrated given the extremely low yields, and the wine goes back to the balance of previous years (with normal yields); there's great harmony and purity here. The palate is fresh, the flavors are clean and pure and there is great length. There's great energy. It has to be one of the finest vintages of Barda. This is an incredible value, a great Pinot Noir from Río Negro at a very attractive price point. 2018 saw good yields, and they were able to produce around 100,000 bottles. - LG

At once supple and juicy, showing lovely spicy/peppery lift to the middle palate. Adamantly dry but with plenty of red fruit intensity complicated by notes of earth and meat. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and good spicy lift. As in most vintages, this is a nuanced, very fresh Pinot Noir for its price range. -- Stephen Tanzer
