The Oddbins Take

If there is one thing we love more than anachronistic units of measurement, here at Oddbins, it's a good origin story. In 2009, through a conversation with a friend, winemaker Adam Mason realised far too many South African Pinots were overripe, over-extracted and over-oaked, he concluded something had to be done. Focusing on high altitude sights and picking earlier Adam has maintained a wonderful freshness and purity of fruit in his Pinot. The wine has expressive notes of bramble and red cherries harmonising perfectly with savoury, earthy, minerally notes. Truly divine and we'd say a couple of furlongs ahead of the rest.

    Pinot Noir - Mixed Case of 6 Red Wines

    £73.25

    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.
