The Origin of Pinot Noir
What Does Pinot Noir Taste Like?
Pinot Noir produces light- to medium-bodied red wines that are pale, often
translucent. The grapes don’t produce tannins or the gritty particles that cause a
drying sensation in your mouth. These are silky wines with invigorating acidity, so they’re easy to enjoy, even by non-wine drinkers.
Pinot Noir offers red and black fruit aromas, often redolent of cherries, and hints of undergrowth, sometimes as damp earth or mushrooms. Also, since Pinot Noir wines spend time.
Pinot Noir Wines to Try

Toi Toi Central Otago Pinot Noir. This is another extraordinary Pinot Noir from
New Zealand, this time from the world’s southernmost wine region — Otago. Expect red and black fruit, spices and a complex yet refined palate held together by mouth-watering acidity. Pair with oily fish and white meat with mushroom sauce.

Pinot Noir Has No Equal

enthusiasts and professionals alike. And although some of the most expensive
wines on the planet are made with Pinot Noir, the grape produces wines for all
budgets and occasions. Pinot is best enjoyed with roasted birds, stir-fries, mushroom dishes and comforting stews. When served slightly chilled, these wines are delicious on their own as well.
