DRINK OF THE WEEK
6th July 2020
Extra Special Pinot Noir Valle de Leyda
Asda 6.50
Drinker Rating 90

Pinot noir is a difficult grape to get right, thin skinned and sensitive, easily spoiled, it needs just the right amount of good weather to turn out well. Too hot it becomes jammy, to cool it can be thin and empty.

But when it's good, it's really good - but due its nature it's often not cheap. But here's a wine that really confounds. Perfectly balanced fruit and acidity with light tannin an easy drinking pinot noir which won't dent your purse.

I keep goning back to an old missive that if you're looking for something reliable and affordable across the board go for Chile and go for big supermarket 'quality' own-brands - this is both.


Cheers!
