Calusari, Timisuli, Romania. 2019
Light, soft and smooth Pinot unusually from Romania, a really easy drinking style that's perfect for when you aren't sure what to drink.
Fantastic, bright juicy Pinot from a family owned estate in Germany. Has a really uplifting minerality on the finish and pairs really well with game birds.
Iona, Mr P, Elgin, South Africa, 2019
Elegant, soft red cherries and earthy undertones from this amazing, organically farmed South African winery.
Sched Family, Ranch 32, California, USA, 2017
Serious Pinot from Monterrey counties, 12 months oak ageing has added a richness to the fruit and depth with hints of mocha, really good with a roast joint of pork.
Hawksdrift, Pinot Noir, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2017
Lots of fresh herbs and peppery spice combining perfectly with fresh red berries and silky tannins.
Domaine Billard, Auxey-Duresses, Burgundy, France 2019
Rich, dense black fruits with floral aroma's and a deep savoury texture. A great wine to add to your cellar and drink in a few years when more of the spices and leathery characteristics will have developed.
