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.

    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.
