Pinot Noir is often regarded as one of the most challenging grapes to grow but also one of the most rewarding. It has always been a firm favourite of MySomm’s.
It is diverse, it is powerful, it is light, it is everything that you need from a red wine. The spiritual home of Pinot Noir is in Burgundy, but this light skinned varietal can be grown in all corners of the world. It’s a grape varietal that takes in the elements and provides wines with the most amazing structure and freshness. It is fine varietal that works with or without oak but always has a familiarity that cannot be hidden. Pinot Noir is great at any time of the year and is also great with an array of foods from steak to salad.
We very much believe that there is a Pinot Noir out there that suits everyone, this first case in our series of varietal cases allows people to find their perfect Pinot!
