11th June - Vertical Tasting: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir has been grown in France’s Burgundy region for centuries. Burgundy is home to some of the world’s most expensive agricultural land, and some of the world’s most costly wines made from Pinot Noir are grown here. It’s possible that a clone of Pinot Noir made its way to Australia with the First Fleet in 1788, and it was definitely part of the collection of vines that James Busby established in the Hunter Valley in the early 1800s. Pinot Noir should be ethereal and hint at its origins or the soil it came from. Tannins are typically fine and soft, expanding at the back of the palate. The best examples age well and often take some years to realise their true character. When tasting Pinot Noir it’s worth bearing in mind that it’s not a big wine, but that it is all about delicacy and length, harmony and finesse. Pinot Noir is also one of the classic Champagne grapes, and is prized around the world for the production of sparkling wine.
