To celebrate Pinot Noir we’re having informal tastings at our shop, No.1 Castle Gate, each Saturday. Come and join us to learn more.

Affectionately known as “the connoisseurs grape” this fussy little variety needs more care and attention in the vineyard than any other. Thankfully the wine-maker’s skill and patience is amply rewarded as we hope to show you through these stunning wines.

Top Five Facts on Pinot Noir

- Thin skinned with small, tight bunches, it’s a tricky grape to grow requiring skill and attention.

- It requires cool climate conditions to develop complex flavours and avoid becoming bland.

- Key flavour profiles include raspberry and strawberry. Oak maturation adds richness and vanilla. Truffles and game meat develop when bottle aged.

- Key growing areas include Burgundy (France), Champagne, New Zealand and Argentina.

- The grape plays a critical role in Champagne, adding depth to the blend along with Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier
