The Oddbins Take

For a long time, the beautiful town of Transylvania was troubled by an obnoxious coven of vampires. These were Bram Stoker vampires as well, not Twilight sparkly vampires. The town didn’t know what to do; a dim-witted gent by the name of Van Helsing confronted them with garlic but the vampires merely used it to properly season a mushroom soup. Van Helsing experimented with wooden stakes hoping this might vanquish them, but the vampires just appropriated them as tent pegs to secure their marquee that provided cover during their spring gala.

Nothing stopped the vampires from raiding blood banks, despite being offered red wine alternatives, they repeatedly spat it out, mocking the drinks quality. That was until Crama La Salina winery approached them with their Issa Pinot Noir. The wine was so palate-filling and rich of flavours of red berries, earthy-mushrooms and peppery spice, the vampires proclaimed they would drink nothing but Pinot for the rest of their days!

    Pinot Noir, Ooh La La - Mixed Case of 6 Red Wines

    £84.00
    Legendry American vintner André Tchelistcheff once claimed, "God made Cabernet Sauvignon, whereas the Devil made Pinot Noir." You may feel this is a little harsh on poor old Pinot, what did it ever do to André, did it leave him for a younger, sexier winemaker? No, although, Pinot is known as the heartbreak grape; so difficult to get right, so vulnerable to so many climactic conditions that it has broken many people who decided to plant it in their vineyards. Yet, perhaps no other grape provokes such passion; sensual and seductive, this case of 6 exceptional Pinots will explain why despite the heartache winemakers still come back to woo this fragile grape.

    Considering our head buyer, Ana Sapungiu MW, was the first ever female Romanian Master of Wine, we feel fairly confident declaring that we have the finest selection of Romanian wines on the internet. O yeah, we went there ‘Romanian-Wines-R-Us.com’! Romania has gone through a bit of a wine revolution over the last 10 years, talented young winemakers have planted new vineyards, brought in new winery equipment and focused on indigenous grape varieties with a sense of place. It’s an exciting time to get into Romanian wine and we feel this mixed case of 6 is the best place to start!
