Burn Valley Vineyard - Pinot Noir 2021


This Pinot Noir is made with carefully selected hand-picked grapes grown on low-yielding vines in chalk soil. Fully ripened grapes undergo cold soaking before fermenting to enhance the colour and flavours of the Pinot. They are then fermented on their skins for two weeks to extract a beautiful colour and flavour. Following a gentle pressing, they are aged for seven months in our barrels. The resulting wine is soft and delicate. Hints of strawberries and redcurrant on the nose plus savoury smoky aromas with a satisfying mouthful and a long, harmonious finish. Matches well with smoked sea trout, turkey or lamb.

Tasting Notes:

  • Fruit Forward: This Pinot Noir showcases a bounty of red and black fruit flavours, including cherry, raspberry, and blackberry. The fruitiness is balanced with subtle hints of earthiness, creating a harmonious and complex profile.

  • Smooth and Silky: With a velvety texture and well-integrated tannins, this wine glides across the palate, delivering a smooth and pleasurable mouthfeel.

  • Elegant Finish: The finish is long and elegant, leaving you with a lingering taste of red fruit and a touch of spice.

Food Pairing: This Pinot Noir pairs wonderfully with a variety of dishes. Try it with roasted poultry, grilled salmon, or a classic mushroom risotto. It's also a delightful companion to a charcuterie platter or soft cheeses.

Whether you're a wine connoisseur or simply appreciate a good glass of red, this wine is sure to impress with its rich flavours and refined character.
