MENU’S Wine of the Week Newton Johnson Elgin Pinot Noir 2011

After a week of tasting exceptional reds, this one charmed us. Yes, we are Pinot Noir fans
We tasted this at our wine club this week, where the theme was West Coast vs East Coast. It is a wine that we love and have bought often and have cellared. The Newton Johnson Pinots Noir win awards and regularly score 5, 4.5 and 4 stars in every Platter Wine Guide. They are deservedly popular
It’s a pale Pinot Noir, delicately perfumed with raspberries, flowers and soft vanilla from the wood, with hints of chocolate and a little licorice on the raspberry fruit palate. So enjoyable, so smooth and juicy with great elegance and follow through. A food wine to savour with game, delicate meat dishes and anything with mushrooms or truffles
