Kristinus – Pinot Noir 2020
This Pinot Noir from the Hungarian Lake Balaton has a wonderful murky scarlet bloody colour with a blush hue.
The aroma offers fruity notes of small red berries like redcurrants, raspberries and Morello cherries, mixed with subtle notes of undergrowth.
The attack is marked by juicy red fruits, but on the mid-palate reaching towards blackberries, white plums (greengage or reine claude) and white pepper.
This wine is well structured with gentle silky tannins.
It will be ideal with terrines and charcuterie but also with stronger cheeses.
An Italian Robiola Due Latti cheese will smooth it down to seriously dangerous glou-glou, personally experienced while tasting 🙂
