100% Pinot Noir
Cranberry juice, subtle raspberry and strawberry lead the way, with wet stone, mineral and tangerine following behind. No oak. Subtle, reasonably elegant, refreshing, and with just enough acidity to keep it interesting. Don’t be afraid to take it out of the fridge 10-15 minutes before you serve, to let some of that fruit come through. 13% alc.
Salmon is a given, but also think about goat cheese, citrus salad, light curries, trout, charcuterie, and shrimp. A perfect poolside wine….which isn’t much use to you in February, but it’s something to bear in mind for the warmer months…
