Meet The Pinot's with Don Rutherford
28th October 2011
... Comments


Pinot grapes feature in some of the world’s greatest wines, including Champagne and the glorious(ly) expensive reds of Burgundy.


Pinot Grigio (Grey) is probably the best known of the Pinot grapes; it is currently in vogue and is thought by most to come from Italy. This is in fact only partially true, as although Pinot Grigio does come from Italy, it is also produced in most of central Europe and has shown real form in Oregon, California, Australia and New Zealand.


Wine of the Week: Baron Lazare, Pinot Grigio, Nagyŕede, Hungary


"The Hungarians have been making wine for the at least the last 800 years,  however under state control a lack of investment and poor quality control contributed to a bad image, which is now fast disappearing.


This wine has a pineapple aroma on the nose, a clean and pleasant palate with hints of lemon and grapefruit. Classy Pinot from an unexpected source. Definitely a number 1 on the dryness scale, this works brilliantly as an aperitif, but can also partner fish and chicken dishes."


More on the pinot family to follow in future week's.
