We have begun our ultimate quest: to make Pinot Noir with a price tag that doesn't want to make you weep. See, Pinot Noir is nicknamed the "heartbreaker grape," it's generally costly because of how difficult it is to grow, and it takes skill and tenacity to produce a bottle you really want to drink. 

This is a cracking Pinot from one of WA's premier cool climate regions. It's a good example of what the more easy going Pinot Noir styles can be. It's light, it's playful and has a little bit of the forest floor wilderness that Pinot is known for. 

Open this crowd-pleaser at a classy dinner party, and pair it with figs and goat cheese.

 

 

THE PINOT NOIR STYLE

Pinot Noir is a thin-skinned grape making light-coloured, light to medium bodied wine with a glut of flavour and complexity. It ranges from strawberry and redcurrant rich for the newer styles of Pinot Noir, to flavours of ripe grapes, black cherries and spices, accented by mushrooms, ripe tomatoes and even barnyard in older, more traditional Burgundian Pinot Noirs. These flavours may not sound as if they'll be very appealing, but Pinot Noir aficionados love them.

An awesome style of wine to drink anytime.

 

 

PEMBERTON REGION

This is where cool climate varietals really come to play in WA. It's slightly cooler than Manjimup, you'll find the best of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Semillon in this relatively remote region. The first vines were only planted here in 1977. Only fifteen per cent of its area is available for viticulture due to all the famous Karri Trees forested.
