Pinot Noir Day – August 18th

Red Wine Poured

As if you didn't already it, here is an excuse to try some new wine! August the 18th is Pinot Noir Day and we have two excellent options to choose from.

We’re not entirely sure where Pinot Noir Day originated from, but what we do know is that the grape variety itself has been used for wine making for centuries, as it has been cultivated in the French Burgundy region since 100 AD.

It is now more commonly found in new world wine making countries such as Australia, Chile, New Zealand and the USA, but it is still heavily prominent in Burgundy, Italy (where it is known as Pinot Nero) and Germany where it is the most planted red grape.

Torreón Pinot Noir Reserva

This is one of our favourite wines from the Chilian wine house of Torreón de Parades. With a ruby-red colour and shades of violet, the mouthfeel is soft, round and well-balanced with a fresh acidity which highlights its fruitiness: a long finish with subtle flavours of coffee, and well-integrated oak.

Saint Clair Marlborough Pinot Noir

A medium bodied red wine (rated C on a scale A to E) from New Zealand with ripe plum fruits, vanilla and spice notes all enhanced by a long finish. This wine has been a recent award winner picking up Gold at the 2017 Decanter World Wine Awards and Silver at The International Wine Challenge 2017.
