In contrast to Cathy’s Pinot Noir on Sandstone Soils, this, formerly known as the Reserve, comes from heavier clay soils; the resultant berries carry a deeper, more brooding character displaying layered, textured truffle savouriness and earthy forest floor interwoven with concentrated black cherry compote harmoniously supported by mineral tannin. Very Chambolle-Musigny in style, there is extra depth and masculinity here, without the wine ever suffering as a consequence. This is first rate, expansive Pinot Noir that pairs well with glazed duck, mushroom risotto, boeuf bourguignon, lamb, coq au vin, venison and ostrich. Cellaring 5-10 years.
For Tandoor dishes with its smoky profile from the clay oven cooking, an earthy Pinot Noir such as this beautiful Pinot from Clay Soils carries a richer earthier texture with mushroom savouriness that brings out those traditional flavours found in the tandoor.
