Pinot Noir is known by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape”. This grape variety needs care & nurturing around the clock. Difficult to grow in the vineyard & always changing in the cellar, crafting a good wine of Pinot Noir is the pinnacle of any winemaker’s personal achievement.
There are two classic styles of Pinot – cherry or earthy. Depending on the winemaker’s preference, the Pinot will be crafted to emphasize the terroir. At Coyote’s Run Winery, they have a unique property of red & black soils. They intentionally grow Pinot Noir vines on both & make the individual wines to taste the difference of their terroir!
Cheers & Enjoy!
Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: A deep red colour with aromas of black cherry, black currant & a whiff of earthiness that reminds you have a walk in the forest. It is a dry medium bodied red wine with subtle tannins that lingers into a velvety elegnat finish. It’s a Pinot that is worth every penny!
Suggested Food Pairing: Pinot Noir is a versatile wine – it can be served chilled or at room temperature. As the wine warms up, aromas, tastes & levels of acidity changes too. Classic matches with Pinot are roast duck, grilled salmon & mushrooms.
