Top Drop – August 2012


2010 Edition Noir

Pinot Noir

With the weather warming up, my taste in red wine tends to move towards the Pinot Noir variety. It is perfectly suited to this time of year and the foods which come along with this season. The wine itself is a lighter shade of red with the aroma of five spice and cloves. Only lightly oaked it’s fresh and vibrant. On the palate the flavour is a delicious mixture of sweet fruit, liqueur cherry, strawberries and spice. The finish is long and velvety.

The 2010 Edition Noir, Pinot Noir is a lovely vibrant drop to enjoy now or over the next two years.

Goes with: Duck, Game or Atlantic Salmon

Cost:         $25.00
