Wine Tasting this week celebrating International Pinot Noir Week!

 

Yarrunga Field Special Reserve Pinot Noir 2017

New South Wales, Australia 14% abv

£9.99

Soft, smooth and oozing rich summer berry fruit, this spectacular Pinot Noir will appeal not just to Pinot Noir fans but also to those who prefer a more full-bodied red. South Australian Pinots are in great demand and Yarrunga Field gives you great value. It's moreish solo and great with sweet-glazed ribs or hoisin crispy duck pancakes.

 

Le Champ des Etoiles Pinot Noir 2018

Pays d'Oc, France 13.5% abv

£11.49

Want all the charming silky red fruit and scent of Burgundy's Pinot Noir without paying the earth? That was the goal for Le Chai winemaker Mark Hoddy. We think he's come up trumps - a perfect balance of lush ripe fruit and classic berry elegance. A charming, silky red that excels with white meats or mushroom risotto.

 

Purple Owl 2018

California, USA 14% abv

£13.49

Purple Owl is no ordinary Pinot Noir - grapes for this juicy berry red are sourced from the finest vineyards on California's Central Coast. A gentle pressing and careful vinification capture all its layers of vibrant cherry and raspberry fruit. Silky smooth plum and raspberry flavours and a subtle note of oaky spice. Try with chicken in red wine or spicy roasted vegetables and couscous.

 

Maison Roche de Bellene 2016

Bourgogne, (Burgundy) France 13.5% abv

£17.99

An outstanding, old-vine cuvée of Burgundy with pure, elegant red fruit, from an ace winemaker. Full to the brim with silky charm, Roche de Bellene Pinot Noir is a real treasure from acclaimed Burgundy winemaker and négociant Nicolas Potel. Made from richly flavoured, old vine grapes, it's a superb, berry scented introduction to the region. Supple enough to drink on its own and ideal with seared tuna.

 

PS Pétillant Rosé Simon's Wine of the Month

Vin de France 11% abv

£10.99

Lightly sparkling, very refreshing, and at a quarter of the price of rosé Champagne, it's good value too. It means you don't need a celebration to crack open a bottle. Simply chill well. PS Pétillant is mouthwatering as an apéritif, also great with king prawns or salade Niçoise, or poured over strawberries with a twist of black pepper.

 

Redheads Rusty Roof Chardonnay

Barossa Valley, Australia 12.5% abv

£13.99

RedHeads has been blazing a trail, first in the McLaren Vale, then in the Barossa. They like to show the Big Boys of these smart regions that they are a winemaking force to be reckoned with. Typical of their winemaking skills is this luscious Barossa white. Fermented and aged in oak, it has a tasty balance of creamy ripe fruit and toasty spice.
