2018 Astrolabe Wairau Valley Pinot Noir
This pinot noir from our Seventh State is a lighter-bodied style with soft tannins.
The fruit was hand/machine harvested, then destemmed into open vats for cold soak followed by a warm wild ferment. Traditional hand-plunging was used to manage the cap, and the wine underwent malolactic fermentation while ageing in French oak barrels.
This elegant Pinot displays a bright crimson hue. Aromas of cherries and brambly fruits flow off the elegant nose, followed by earthy and savoury nuances. The delicate and fruity palate is brimming with cherry and berry flavours providing a marvellous tannin structure as well as weight to the wine.
It is an ideal pairing to wild duck, char grilled chicken and tuna.
2020 Bouchard Aines & Fils Pinot Noir
The Bourgogne rouge (red Burgundy) regional appellation is harvested throughout the Burgundy winegrowing area, covering approximately 2,000 hectares.
The grapes for the Bouchard Aine & Fils Pinot Noir mainly come from selected terroirs on the Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise (in the South of Burgundy). A small part of their cuvée is also coming from the Côte de Nuits vineyards.
Elegant ruby red in colour with a fine and subtle nose with pleasant aromas of small black fruits, and touches of cherries. The palate is layered with fruity and delicate toasted notes and a medium body. Flavours of chocolate are emphasized by a hint of menthol, lying on silky tannins. The finish is long with assorted fruit flavours and a subtle touch of oak.
Enjoy with a plate of cured meats, pasta, meat pies, or daily typical French cuisine such as coq au vin, beef stew and camembert cheese.
2021 Coppabella Tumbarumba Single Vineyard Pinot Noir
This is honestly not just one of the best priced Pinot Noir on the market but one of the best valued wine on the market. This single vineyard Pinot Noir from Tumbarumba NSW, is grown in an array of soil types, with various aspects and from multiple clones; creating Pinot Noirs with greater complexity.
One of my favourite go to Pinot Noirs for many years.
