De Bortoli Vinoque Same Same Pinot Blend 2017
This fruity Pinot Meunier/Pinot Noir blend from De Bortoli is the only one we've come across. Light, aromatic, textual and delicious!
De Bortoli are one of Australia's most famous and historic winemaking families. This new range bottled under the 'Vinoque' label is a chance to showcase their experimental side, and offers unique flavours and styles which prove how versatile Australia can really be. The wines include a mouthwatering Greco, usually found in southern Italy, a fruity Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir blend - the only one we've come across, plus a dark and enticing Iberian blend based on Touriga Nacional. Alongside the interesting grapes and blends, the range is also sourced from specific premium regions such as Yarra Valley and Heathcote. If this wasn't enough, they are well-priced and offer superb value for money.
This highly unusual blend of 70% Pinot Meunier and 30% Pinot Noir is a great find. This is vibrant and aromatic, with a pale ruby colour and lots of texture and freshness on the palate. It's full of freshly picked red berries with floral notes of roses, and has a flavour reminiscent of Blanc de Noirs Champagne thanks to the high percentage of Meunier. Try with duck, pork and poultry dishes, and enjoy over the next 1-2 years.
