When the temperature drops and I hunker down for fall and winter my wine choices turn to more reds. I also tend to eat more savoury dishes which compliment red wines. If this sounds like you here’s a splurge wine to add to your autumn wine list. Blue Mountain has won many raves for its Pinot Noir and it’s easy to see why. While this Pinot is a light red in the glass that’s not what I tasted. A beautiful rich mix of red and black fruit, loads of flavour in a polished wine that can stand on its own against the best from France and California. I loved the subtle hints of spice and lingering finish. Make this your special occasion Pinot. Please note the wide price range so shop around.
