Pinot Noir does whatever it wants. It’s one of the more difficult grapes to grow due to its thin skins and susceptibility to disease, but that’s never stopped winemakers across the world. If coming from a cooler climate, like its home land of Burgundy, the acid is racing and balanced, typically, with oak aging. On the contrary, in warmer climates, bright red fruit is the name of the game. All are solid options and we’re continually impressed by new expressions of this world-famous red grape.
