Getting to Know the Wine
For this week’s ‘Bevvy of the Week‘ we are going to look at a red grape variety called Pinot Noir. This grape is planted in a number of the wine producing countries with success. But nowhere does it better than Burgundy in France. Everything from the soil, land, weather and location of Burgundy are suited to this grape variety. Also, some of the best wines in the world are made in this region from Pinot Noir.
Pinot Noir produces wine that is soft and smooth and bursting with red berry characteristics. It can also be fuller and richer with more body – that’s more of the top shelf stuff. Overall it really is a great red wine drinking experience.
So if you have yet to try Pinot Noir get yourself down to your local off Licence, head over to the Burgundy section and pick up a bottle from Burgundy. You could also try one from New Zealand as they are producing some great wine made from the grape.
Alcoholic Drinks that is. Beers, wines and spirits. And sometimes cocktails too. He's quite the expert really. With tons of academic and professional experience in the Drinks Industry in Ireland. Nowadays drink talk is a hobby, and he likes to share his knowledge here on The Life of Stuff. And that's why we love his Bevvy of the Week recommendations.
