Wine the Third – Pinot Noir

The Grape

Pinot Noir is said by some to be one of the most difficult wines to grow and produce. The grapes don’t like cool weather, and get diseases and rot fairly easily. A main area for the grape is Burgundy in France.

The tastes of Pinot Noir are said to be red berry like. Think raspberries, cherries and strawberries. It’s meant to be a very fragrant wine with perfume like notes.


The Wine

The selected wine this week was ‘Surprisingly Good Pinot Noir’, bought from Morrisons for £5. It’s from Romania and says it’d be good with ribs. It’s 13% and you can barely taste that. What you do taste though are the cherry and raspberries in it. Much sweeter than the previous styles of wine I think, but still delicious. Highly recommend!

Till next time where we make a start on the white nobel grapes!
