WINE PAIRING OF THE WEEK: Belle Glos Pinot Noir Las Alturas Vineyard & Wild Mushromm Risotto
This full bodied, fruity Pinot Noir comes from the vineyards planted on one of the highest sites in California’s Monterey County. Cooled by the fresh coastal air and warmed by consistent sunshine, it’s ideal for pinot growing. Rich, dark and concentrated, it’s bursting with black cherry and ripe plum flavours with a touch of earth and spice. Tannins are soft, ripe and well integrated. Closes in a lingering, polished finish. Pair with wild mushroom risotto and juicy meat roasts. Would age well for the next 6-8 years. Score: 92/100.
