Bevvy of the Week – Pinot Noir

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

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.

Cheers, Sláinte,
