DRINK OF THE WEEK  -
22nd May 2017
Exquisite Collection NZ Pinot Noir
Aldi 6.99
Drinker Rating 90

Pinot Noir continues to beguile me. The star of red Burgundy, it can be light and fruit driven when young and grown in cool climates and rich and jammy when grown in hotter conditions. When it ages it goes all savoury, think forest floor, damp earth and even ripe farmyard.

This is a fruit driven wine from New Zealand but it does hold a little of the savoury character described, it's light raspberry mixed with a hint of leather.A real beauty and less than seven quid. Amazing.

Cheers!
