Pinot Noir is a triple-threat to winemakers – notoriously difficult to grow, ripen and produce wine from. But when the winery gets this temperamental variety right, it becomes one of the most sought after medium bodied red wines both here at Wine Selectors and in the world. A young Pinot Noir will show strawberries, raspberries, violets, spice and forest floor characteristics and with age they will develop to display game, earth, mushroom, aniseed and leather. It goes beautifully with duck and other game birds, truffles, and mushroom dishes. Check out Shiraz or Tempranillo for an alternative red wine variety.
