Forget everything you know about red wine, this delicious Pinot Noir is breaking all the rules

by , 06 May 2014

If you've always thought you can only drink red wine with red meat… That they always need be inky red in colour, have an oaky flavour and high tannin content, it's time to rethink those ideas. The Winery of Good Hope Reserve Pinot Noir 2012 is fruity… Great with seafood… Fragrant… And it's changing the way wine lovers experience this much loved red wine. Here's why…

Pinot Noir – the most amazing wine you’ll ever taste

Notoriously hard to grow, Pinot Noir – or the heartbreak wine as wine growers call it – is the most highly prized wine in the world.
 
Why?
 
Because when wine producers get it right, it can be the most amazing wine you’ll ever taste. 
 
After all, explains askmen.com, Pinot Noir’s seduction lies in its layers of flavour. “A good Pinot Noir should have layers of flavour from the front palette to the mid palette and right the way through… With Pinot Noir you get a lot of layers right through the flavour profile.”
 
And that’s exactly what you’ll get when you sip the Winery of Good Hope Reserve Pinot Noir 2012.
 

What makes Winery of Good Hope Reserve Pinot Noir 2012 so special?

Produced from the wine of four Cape vineyards, Winery Good Hope’s Reserve Pinot Noir contains the best Pinot the cool, Atlantic breezes and fertile lands of the Elgin and Stellenbosch-Helderberg regions can produce. 
 
And this mix really shows through – producing a wine that’s really something special. 
 
According to the winery, the Stellenbosch fruit gives this wine a more muscular, dense, earthy Pinot character, while the Elgin fruit’s wonderful, juicy, cherry and strawberry flavours gives the wine a clean, mineral acidity and a lingering finish.
 
Added to this, the dry winter combined with strong summer rainfalls during the grapes’ growing season have resulted in a delicate red wine with wonderful balance, purity and freshness. 
 
Matured in 600 litre oak barrels in the traditional style of Burgundy, this unique adaption to this much loved red wine varietal will blow your mind. 
 
Together, these characteristics make it a really lovely drinking Pinot Noir, at a very reasonable price. Pair with sushi and seafood when it’s warm and duck, quiche and pork belly in the colder months and its versatility and flavour is sure to surprise you.
