The Oddbins Take

Many moons ago (possibly 47), when we first discovered top quality Pinot Noir grown in Australia, we descended into a similar state of shock as when we discovered you can ski in Australia. “What? But… there’s snakes, deserts and beautiful tanned people everywhere, how could it possibly be cool enough to ski down to a bar, where we could enjoy a locally produced Pinot Noir? Wakeboarding past a Shiraz vineyard fine, but Pinot?”
Well, it turns out Australia is hot, however, plantings like those for the Wakefield Estate in Adelaide Hills have enough altitude, and exposure to the deep Antarctic waters around the southern coast, that Pinot Noir grapes can fully ripen while still maintaining freshness and aromatic purity. Wakefield Estate Pinot Noir has a soft and silky structure with varietally typical notes of redcurrants and strawberries backed by savoury characters of black pepper, cinnamon and forest floor. Dust off your skis, we’re going down under!

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

    £91.00
    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.
