August 18 is National Pinot Noir Day and here are some top picks to help you celebrate.
La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
The La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir has aromas of boysenberry, cherry, and sweet tobacco accompanied by flavours of raspberry, blackberry and cherry.
A varietal with more fruity notes, try pairing with salmon or other fatty fish, roast chicken, or pasta dishes to create a beautiful balance.
La Crema Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
The La Crema Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has savoury notes of oak complemented by initial notes of sweet cherry, raspberry, and roasted plum, which give way to rustic tannins, contributing to a supple overall texture.
Made in Oregon, this wine pairs with fattier foods such as filet mignon, prime rib, nuts like hazelnut and rare fish, such as salmon.
While this may be for those with a higher budget, it is certainly an excellent choice for any celebration.
If we haven’t managed to win you over and convince you red wine is a great summer wine, La Crema’s Pinot Noir Rosé is the perfect compromise – so you can still celebrate!
La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir Rosé
The La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir Rosé offers delicate aromas of orange blossom along with raspberry and watermelon.
Subtle mineral notes and flavours of strawberry, Pink Lady apple, and orange creamsicle are present, with a juicy acidity and flinty mineral notes to drive a long finish.
For summertime sipping, enjoy with soft cheese, grilled vegetables, and grilled vegetables.
