The Oddbins Take

Everyone agreed the old horse-drawn cart was just the vehicle to transport the Pinot grapes from vineyard to winery, but they failed to take into account the antique craftsmanship. The suspension springs were fashioned from the tough, ungiving wood of the Manuka tree, and the poor Pinot was jostled so roughly the grapes began to split. As the sun hit the broken berries, a deep aroma of warm raspberries rose from the cart and the juice began to ferment. Happily, however, the resulting wine was so elegant that to this day the first crushing is done driving the grapes round in that very same old cart.

    If you drop in to my house on a weekday evening it's probably one of these you'll be offered first. These are wines I think have the particular versatility and interest to drink on a regular basis but won't break the bank, though maybe taste a bit like they might. Wine rack winners!

    New Zealand makes a minuscule amount of wine (less than 1% of all the wine produced in the world), but its reputation is colossal, and deservedly so, because the quality of their wine is impressive. Treat yourself or a friend to half a dozen of these Kiwi lovelies!

    Pinot noir is a sensitive little grape. Notoriously difficult to grow, it is mostly associated with the Burgundy region in France. However, despite it's fragile nature, it is one of the most popular grape varieties going and is grown all over the world to be used in a huge variety of fantastic wines.

    From Germany to South Africa, Chile to Romania, New Zealand to France (of course!), we've put this case of light-bodied red wines together as an introduction to pinot noir to show the different styles that can be found across the world.
