The joy of Pinot Noir


Explore six wonderful expressions of the world’s most bewitching grape with our globe-trotting Pinot Noir discovery case.

Domaine Chanson, Givry Rouge, Burgundy, France 2018

Good value Burgundy from a famous village in the south of the region. Bright ruby colour with purple nuances. Fragrances of roses mixed with refreshing aromas fof ripe raspberries with spicy notes. Well-balanced and complex. Very pure fruit. Long and generous finish.

Larry Cherubino / Ad Hoc, ‘Cruel Mistress’, Great Southern, Australia 2021

This great value Pinot Noir nose shows graphite, minerals and juicy black cherries. A hint of spicy oak plays a supporting role. The palate is softly textured, fresh and vibrant, the flavours of black cherry and earthy beetroot carried along by a fine, long acid finish. Perfect with pheasant or a game stew.

Saint Clair, ‘Origin’ Pinot Noir, Marlborough, New Zealand 2021

A flavoursome Kiwi Pinot Noir from a pioneering Marlborough producer. Aromas of ripe red berries are interlaced with spice and blackcurrant bud. The palate is full and rich, with flavours of vibrant red berries, layered with warm, spiced fruit through to a silky finish.

Espinos y Cardos, Santa Macarena Pinot Noir, Aconcagua, Chile 2021

A single vineyard Pinot Noir from one of the most coastal vineyards in Chile. Bright, aromatic and fresh with delicious red fruit flavours and subtle oak playing a supporting role. A seriously cool, very versatile Pinot that pairs with just about anything from salmon to duck.

Ten Minutes by Tractor, 10X Pinot Noir, Mornington Peninsula, Australia 2018

Round and red-fruited through the mid palate, this is every bit the classic, generous Mornington Pinot, yet with subtle mushroom nuances and a flutter of compact, but real tannins. A fantastic wine from a great winery.
