Last night’s tipple (from Howard) is our 2nd December wine choice. He’s serving up a little chicken casserole with dumplings and I’m sure the Ben Marco Pinot Noir would have matched perfectly. And that is a 750ml bottle, I think they’re just giant glasses 😆
It’s a great choice for Christmas lunch too as the soft red fruit character of the Pinot is an excellent match with Turkey and cranberry sauce. Yum, yum, yum 😋
Ben Marco Pinot Noir 2017
Grapes: 95% Pinot Noir, 5% Viognier
Tasting note: From Los Árboles in the Uco Valley, the Ben Marco Pinot Noir has 5% Viognier in the blend to give the wine a lovely aromatic lift and fuller mouthfeel. It’s bursting with red fruits and notes of white flower and white chocolate.
