Pinot Noir is an elusive grape. But its finest expressions reach their lofty peaks in Burgundy. Central to this are the east facing, gentle limestone slopes of the Cote d’Or. A tangled network of complicated names and vineyard divisions have come about as a result of the painstaking observation, detail and care taken by monks who cultivated the vine here since the Middle Ages. These tiny vineyard parcels, sometimes just single rows of vines, are farmed by whole families, often transformed into single barrels of wine. But this custodianship and excellence is rewarded in the drinking. Great Burgundies are subtle, elegant wines of vivid fragrance, nuance and complexity. They are capable of utter transformation and evolution rewarding years of cellaring. Now, more than ever, the wines are consistently of the utmost quality.
Grand cru and premier cru appellations occupy the top of the hierarchy. Wines bearing village names or even lieux-dit (named places in vineyard sites), can offer quality and price intersections still available to the enthusiast. The best advice in Burgundy is producer, producer, producer. Find one you like and follow their wines, the best you can afford.
Such is the demand for these wines, that growing pinot has become a singular obsession of quality focused winemakers wherever climate will support their endeavours. Finicky to grow and handle in the cellar, the cruel trick of this grape is that great results are only achieved in places that may break hearts, spirit and bank accounts in trying. But persist they do. When it’s done well it can be a (not so cheap) thrill in a glass.
While Burgundy may hold the throne as makers of the most majestic styles in the world, Australia, New Zealand and the west coast of America are New World beacons.
A little roll call for you to work your way through:
Australia – Yarra Valley, Geelong, Gippsland, Mornington, Macedon and Tasmania
New Zealand – Central Otago, Marlborough and Martinborough.
USA – California’s Santa Rta. Hills, Santa Ynez, Sonoma Coast and Anderson Valley. Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
Germany – the southern regions of Baden, Freiburg and Pfalz
Extreme new frontiers, if you can get your hands on them. Southern Argentina’s Patagonia, southernmost South Africa’s Walker Bay. And Swiss specialities from Graubünden.

Roche de Bellene Bellenos Rouge 2018The Bellenos Cuvée Rouge is primarily from the Beaujolais area in the south of Burgundy, where fruity, mineral-inflected Gamay Noir is grown on granite soils. It is blended with finely structured Pinot Noir from the Côte d’Or in northern Burgundy. The result is a fresh, fruit-forward “Vin de Plaisir” — a deliciously expressive wine for everyday enjoyment.

Palliser Estate Pencarrow Pinot Noir 2019Palliser Estate planted in 1984 is one of the pioneers of the Martinborough region. Martinborough only produces 1% of New Zealands' wine but is now synonymous with growing and making great wine. All the wines are 100% estate grown from six vineyards situated on the revered Martinborough Terrace, 25% of which are under organic management with the aim to take this to 100% by 2025.
Like so many of the great producers its not just the quality of the wines the produce but the consistency that makes them so impressive which makes Pencarrow, undoubtably, one of the greatest value wines coming out of NZ.
We are always a little shocked at how good this wine is. Definitely touting its Martinborough heritage in a firm and savoury style pinot. More toward the black fruit spectrum of pinot there is always something a touch darker in the nose and on the pallet. Savoury tannins lightly caress the core of sweet fruit and some complex undergrowth and wild herb off-set the flavours nicely.2019Pinot noirNew Zealand435Special Price $20.00 Regular Price $25.00

Amen Break Pinot Noir 2018A collaboration between Matt Harrop and his brother Steve. Steve is a musician and record producer- he bought his vintage analogue Soundcraft 2400 desk from U2 in Dublin. He also grows his own Pinot Noir in the Waitaki Valley under the Sublime Label.
Since 2016 the Amen break Pinot Noir has been grown at the extraordinary Zebra Vineyard in Bendigo. Soil here is very weak, loessial and alluvial river terraces.
The ambition with the Amen Break Pinot has been to produce wines with lifted aromatic, textured mid palates and refined, lithe tannins. Hand harvested and naturally fermented. A mixture of clones that are both destemmed whole bunch pressed with no new wood.
Lovely lifted red fruits, some pomegranate seed, lovely textured mid palate and long fine extract at the end. Evenly ripened, beautifully poised wine. Noticably absent is the heaviness of extract or overburden of wood. Pure, delicious Pinot for drinking now or into the future. PWS

Caves de Pouilly Les Tuileries Coteaux du Giennois Sur Loire Rouge 2018The Caves de Poulliy wines are sourced from the relatively new appellation of Cotteaux de Giennois which sits in the upper Loire just north of Sancerre. It shares the same kimeridgian clay and limestone soils commone to the region which give the wines their distinctive, minerally twang.
These are such cracking wines that are terroir driven and unique as well as being stupidly drinkable. Ther is a white that is baby Sancerre and this red which is blend of mainly pinot noir with a touch of gamay. It's all about the pure red fruits and crunchy earthy spice which jumps out at you. It's bright and brambly and you can smell the clay soils. Airy and easy but with a spike of fresh tannin that cuts the juicy fruit. All-in-all pretty easy to get through a bottle of this with a friend so you better buy two! PWS

Moorooduc Estate Devil Bend Creek Pinot Noir 2019
We have always had great relationship with the Mcintyre family and Kate in particular who we have collaborated with on numerous projects. They are pioneers and standard bearers for the Mornington Peninsula. The wines from top to bottom are all sensational and we are proud to call them our friends. PWS
Our philsophy in everything we do is to make the most of top quality ingredients. Intensive, hands-on care in the vineyard, with minimal use of chemicals, produces the best possible fruit for our wines. Wild yeast ferments and minimal intervention winemaking, with a nod to traditional Burgundian techniques, allow our wines to express their site specificity, or terroir. MOOROODUC
A touch of tomato leaf with raspberry and a slight black fruited edge to this slightly more plump and plush version of the Devil Bend Creek. Light, gentle tannins slide their way through the middle.

Oakridge Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2019
2020 Langtons Yarra Valley Wine Show
A traditional winemaking approach with whole berry/bunch fermentation in open vessels for three weeks followed by a 9 month maturation in French oak barrels.
Crimson Red in colour with a maroon hue. A sophisticated mix of fruit and spice aroma’s on the nose. With crushed strawberry, red cherry and pomegranate, element of spice and a touch of earth from the whole bunch inclusion add complexity. The palate displays a lush and layered density of fruit with dark cherry and red berry flavours with plush fruit tannins woven in adding complexity. There is a soft yet bright acid line providing drive and length to wine before the classic fantail finish of a great Yarra Pinot Noir.2019Pinot noirAustralia506Special Price $23.20 Regular Price $29.00
Kooyong Pinot Noir 2019 375ml
Kooyong, owned by Giorgio and Dianne Gjergja, released its first wines in 2001. The vineyard is planted to pinot noir (20ha), chardonnay (10.4ha) and, more recently, pinot gris (3ha). In July '15, following the departure of Sandro Mosele, his assistant of six years, Glen Hayley, was appointed to take his place. The Kooyong wines are made at the state-of-the-art winery of Port Phillip Estate, also owned by the Gjergjas. JAMES HALLIDAY
The estate Pinot Noir from one of the Mornington Peninsula’s flag bearers.
It’s a wine defined by its shape. It angles towards the finish and then pushes on out; the pulleys are in place from the beginning. Twiggy spice, a general woody/savouriness, dark cherry and a light coating of cedar. I wouldn’t call it taut but I would call it firm and indeed strict. It’s as though the wine’s flavour run on converging rails. It’ll be a better drink in a year or more. CAMPBELL MATTINSON2019Pinot noirAustralia441Special Price $24.00 Regular Price $30.00

Scout Wines Pinot x Pinot 2021Sarah and Greg are making fantastic wines from New Zealand's south island where their approach to site, viticulture and picking along with their gentle way in the winery, see them creating pure and forward wines with subtle complexity. Continually questioning all aspects of grape growing and winemaking, as well as challenging established ideas and practices, have been key to this small producer establishing a trademark stance for quality above all else. This release is one of the best we have seen.
This is 90% Pinot Noir with 10% Pinot Gris-the two varieties are not often blended, but together they provide Scout with an ode to Beaujolais-resulting in a bright, light, crunchy and delicious red wine. It was sourced from two vineyards in Central Otago, both organically managed and harvested by hand. Components of this wine were allowed to undergo spontaneous carbonic maceration over 7-14 days. After this time, the grapes were foot-stomped and finished the ferment on skins. Once pressed, it was aged in old oak for six months before bottling in September.2019Pinot noirNew ZealandSpecial Price $28.00 Regular Price $35.00
Mulline Nouveau 2021
80% whole bunch. Old oak for four months.
Well, this is very nice. Light and fresh, strawberries and plenty of spice, crisp and cool, a cranberry and watermelon crunch to it, fine emery tannin, not sweet, yet still bright and fruity, kind of playful, but a little bit serious too. Good length. Super level of drinking appeal. So nicely done. GARY WALSH, The Wiue Front
Ben Mulline and his partner Ben Mullen are making a splash in Geelong with there new label. Mullen has worked at some of the finest addresses around the world, such as Leeuwin Estate, Torbreck, Yarra Yering and Oakridge as well as Domaine Dujac in Burgundy, and Craggy Range, New Zealand.. Prior to launching their label, he was the chief winemaker at Clyde Park. An impressive resume by anyone's standards.
These are wines that express a number of Geelong's single sites which Ben has an intimate knowledge of. This has also allowed him to gain access to some of the regions best fruit for his Nouveau, a blend of multiple sites made in an up-front, juicy style that is difficult not to love.2021Pinot noirSpecial Price $28.00 Regular Price $35.00

Gentle Folk Vin de Sofa Red 2021Gareth and Rainto Belton are the faces behind the Gentle Folk label based out of the Basket ranges in the Adelaide Hills. Gareth farms their three vineyards working organically and shying away from additions as much as possible in the winery.
The Vin de Sofa is a pun on the French wine term Vin de Soif - an easy drinking, don't think too hard and just enjoy the wine term. Each vintage the wine changes depending on season and whims.
This year is a blend of Adelaide Hills vineyards, with pinot noir bunches in neutral French barriques, pinot gris pressed into stainless steel, and syrah and sangiovese destemmed and left on skins.
Its open and sweetly perfumed with spicy red fruits and black raspberry wrapped in wild meadow herbs and dry bay. Its soft and juicy in the mouth with succulent fruit. The sangiovese adds a lovely drop of savoury tannin that gently lines the pallet and carries it along giving a mouth-watering and more-ish edge to the wine. You could chill it lightly if you were so inclined but whatever way you have it, it is straight-up delicious.

Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir 2019
Ata Rangi’s second-label pinot noir made from grapes grown on younger vines than their flagship wine. It is sporting a new label showing a stylised Pohutukawa flower. Seamless, stylish pinot noir with savoury, dried herb, spice, cherry, floral and violet flavours. Deliciously approachable now but should develop well, at least in the medium term. BOB CAMPBELL MW
Love the wine. The new packaging? Dunno, maybe I just don’t like change.
More deeply pitched. A plusher and darker fruited Crimson, equally a touch more structured too. The volume has been ramped up a notch but it’s super fresh and the tannins perfectly measured to support the sappy feeling fruit.
It’s always great but I think it’s a bit more “serious” this year. I want to see it in three or four years. I think it’s got some upward swing.
Always one of my favourite affordable Pinots, Ata seems to keep finding a little extra each year. Another ripper. ROSCOE2018Pinot noirNew Zealand435Special Price $32.00 Regular Price $40.00

Altera Terra Corda 2019
Supple and flavoursome, this old-fashioned Australia red ‘burgundy’ unfolds a pretty, floral perfume of sweet raspberries, cherries and redcurrants backed by suggestions of beetroot, cola and a whiff of pine needle. It’s medium in weight, with a long, smooth drive of sour-edged Morello cherries, dark plum and licorice underpinned by a drying, dusty spine. Wrapped in a vivacious acidity, it’s gentle to the touch but powerful in its delivery. Certain to flesh out further. JEREMY OLIVER
Crimson with a purple hue and a heady nose that is super floral, picy and complex. Plum, baked cherry, dried blueberry and savoury leaning red and dark berries are coloured by wild herbals, salted Dutch licorice, peppered meat and chocolate. A touch gamey.
Juicy, structured and full of flavour with a firm drive of sweet and boisterous red berries, cherry, raspberry cream, blood orange, anise, white pepper, rosemary and thyme. Great intensity and length, carried by a river of cherry/citrus acidity and held by a grip of confident tension. This will keep evolving with time.

Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2017It caresses the mouth with its round, chocolatey tannins that leave you licking your cheeks. If KFC's chicken is finger licking good, Tom's is palate-licking good. This is a pretty freaking delicious and super young wine. REBECCA GIBB MW
It's been a while between drinks for me and the Finn family of Neudorf but they're always front of mind in upper echelon NZ wine production and a great yardstick for Nelson wines. Tom's Block Pinot Noir is reliably good too.
It has that hallmark Nelson ripe cherry and salted herb aroma I so often look for in regional pinot noirs. Pretty perfume and a touch savoury, let's say. The palate is slender but packs in dark cherry flavours, more of the salted herbs, a little smokiness and some graphite-like mineral character. It feels sleek and shy, understated and fine. It's a really, really pleasing wine here. MIKE BENNIE
Neudorf are the undisputed stars of New Zealand's Nelson wine region. And this wine, Tom's Block Pinot Noir, is really hitting the spot in terms of quality, drinkability, and affordability. This is bright and expressive, with sweet ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit with hints of tar and spice. There's a lovely crunchy structure here: it's really fruity and pretty with some cranberry brightness as well as a bit of fruity depth. Great balance to this wine, which is drinking perfectly now. JAMIE GOODE
This is fresh and lively and has intense red-cherry aromas with dark herbal tones. The palate is deeply flavored with a fresh, crunchy red-cherry core. Neatly proportioned tannins. Good value. JAMES SUCKLING
