The Oddbins Take

The Humboldt Current. What can you say? It's a Pacific Ocean current that runs along the coast of Chile that, being an upwelling current, pushes cold, nutrient-rich water from the bottom of the ocean to the top, resulting in the current's ecosystem being the most productive of its kind in the world!


It accounts for 20% of the world's fish catches and, if that's not enough, then it brings cold, wet wind to coastal wine regions like the Leyda Valley. The resulting cool climate brings a longer ripening season, so greater quality and complexity.


Good news indeed for this juicy, red-fruit-driven Pinot Noir, which ends up with perfectly-balanced tannin and acidity that fill the mouth with radiant succulence. Well done, Humboldt Current!

    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.
