Pinot Noir is well-suited to the cool slopes and ancient soils of the Adelaide Hills. If you haven’t experienced this little pocket of Australian vineyards, I recommend you do. It’s not only a beautiful region but the wine is delicious!
Nepenthe is a well-known cellar door in the area and their 2015 Pinot Noir is knocking the socks off people, Huon Hooke included.
Full of summer ripe cherry and raspberry flavours with subtle spice, herb and oakiness. A complementing acid structure means a clean, savoury palate and grippy tannins lead into a lingering finish. This Pinot is ideal for food pairing and suggestions include the old favourite – duck, or a modern alternative – sheep’s milk cheese. You can read the full tasting notes here.
Huon Hooke wasn’t wrong when he said ‘it’s great value for money’. Retailing for just $20, this wine is an affordable Pinot, perfect for a mid-week tipple. We found at a slightly discounted $18.99 which we’ve used as our Real Price.
With this offer, it will set you back $16.90 in any six. It’s only a small discount but with a wine that was already cheap at full RRP, can we really complain? This offer gets 3 stars.
Vivino users rate it 3.6 stars calling it ‘very drinkable and great value’. It might not be top of the range quality Pinot, but with a 91 point review and this price tag, it’s hard to go wrong.
Why not buy six of the same and drink it with cured meats and cheese on a warm afternoon? Pure Pinot Paradise!
