Pinot Noir

The Pinot Noir grape requires very specific conditions to grow, which makes it a difficult variety to grow economically for winemakers outside of the traditional areas of Burgundy, Champagne and Baden (Germany). The climate of many New World regions are too warm, but carefully monitored developments in Chile have had great success. The rewards are a fine flavour and easy-drinking juice adding soft, light tannins that develop quickly and do not need to age for a long time to reach complexity.
