Calusari Umbrelle Pinot Noir 2011, Romania
Romania has produced good Pinot Noir for a long time now. The grape thrives in the relatively cool climate there and produces elegant styles like this excellent example which was the top selling red at our Annual Oxford Wine Fair last November.
Domaine de Cabrials Pinot Noir 2011, France
France is the home of Pinot Noir and this great example from the south has unusual smoothness combined with richness and raspberry fruit.
Nostros Reserva Pinot Noir 2011, Chile
This superb wine shows just how good Chile has become in making great Pinot Noir. 'This Pinot has gentle loganberry and black plum fruit, a lush, almost fat, texture – but it’s beautifully balanced – and an exotic scent of eucalyptus.' – Oz Clarke
Hidden Bay Pinot Noir 2010, New Zealand
New Zealand makes superb value Pinot Noir and this example is no exception, showing rich red berry fruit, hints of cherry and a subtle touch of spice.
