An esteemed panel of judges, including eight Masters of Wine, were responsible for awarding the medals to the world's top wines, including our luscious Pinot Noir.
The latest win comes hot on the heels of a double gold win at the Global Sauvignon Blanc Masters competition in late 2016, in which not one but two of our Sauvs were awarded the top medal.
Bob Campbell, MW, has already given the Pinot 91 points and 4 stars:
"Bright, fresh pinot noir, with pronounced cherry and plum flavours plus a suggestion of herbs and sappy tannin flavours. An appealing, gutsy wine with obvious cellaring potential."
This gold medal Pinot is a great match with gamey meats like venison and duck, or anything cooked over a smoky BBQ. For a quick and delicious mid-week match for our Pinot Noir, check out Annabel Langbein's venison steaks with balsamic jus (it's way easier to make than it sounds, we promise!).
For less carnivorous appetites, you could try mushrooms, roast vegetables and nutty cheeses. FYI, nutty cheeses are usually aged for longer, and have a firmer texture than others. Often Swiss-style cheese has a nutty flavour that would be perfect with a glass or two of Pinot Noir at the end of a long day (or week). For a simple and quick snack to go with your wine, try this recipe for mushrooms stuffed with Swiss cheese.
