Description

Pinot Noir at Spencer and Co Wine Bar Provedore cohosted with The Wine Depository


Do you think Pinot Noir is the greatest grape known to humanity? If yes, this is for you. If no, you need to come and be enlightened.


What Is So Good About Pinot Noir?

The hardest grape to grow well; when you get all the factors right it makes wines that can be described as ethereal. Early ripening and thin skinned berries mean that rain, hail, diseases, moulds and fauna are all able to wreak havoc. And that is assuming you’ve planted in the right terroir to begin with. Too hot, too cold, too much rain, not enough rain, the wrong soil composition, will all mean you can never make a good wine and were wishing you just planted Shiraz.

If you got all of that right you also face the fact that Pinot Noir is also highly prone to mutation, which means you might find yourself making Pinot Gris or Pinot Blanc instead. But taste great Champagne, Grand Cru Red Burgundy, Yarra/Mornington/Tasmanian Pinot, Otago/Martinborough/Marlborough Pinot, Oregon, Patagonia, Baden in Germany, and you’ll see why growers persist.

Especially when they’ve had many years in bottle.


Event Includes

Six wines made from Pinot Noir, selection of tasting menu, notes and expert presentation on the wines by Phil from The Wine Depository. The focus will be on great regions of Australia with a compare/contrast with New Zealand and France.

Limited to 20 places.
