LE20 | December Red | Double Noir | New Zealand & California
Marlborough, New Zealand & Lodi, California
Marlborough garners much acclaim for its cool climate Pinot Noirs. The region enjoys plenty of sunshine and the moderate temperatures see a strong swing between day and night, fostering strong varietal expression. Lodi also sees big temperature swings from day to night, which helps Gamay retain its characteristic acidity.
Pinot Noir (New Zealand) & Gamay Noir (California)
Pinot Noir and Gamay Noir blended together are the perfect pair - both varietals feature firm natural acidity with moderate to low tannins making this an extremely food-friendly wine, but also that rare red that can be enjoyed all on its own. Cherry and cranberry on the nose with a subtle floral note. Being a fruit forward red, cherry flavours and even hints of strawberry, are beautifully accented by an underpinning soft subtle tannin and spice. Vibrant and versatile with freshness and finesse. You can even try chilling Double Noir half an hour before serving.
