Owing to the very high cost of red Burgundy I wanted to get an idea of an alternative which is slightly better value.
I am in search of a Pinot Noir which is the same sort of style as Burgundy eg not an overly fruity wine but more towards structure.
I have tried the below already which I did enjoy:
I also had some of the Zarcillo quite a while back, but felt it was slightly too fruity for me:
I found the below french country Pinot Noir actually quite good and great value but lacked some complexity:
Unfortunatly the Bulgaria Soli seems to be out of stock but I am looking towards some other new world Pinot Noirs. We did have a VERY nice Chilean wine (Maycas del Limari San Julian) which had structure with some good fruit concentration and a well balanced wine - however its at Burgundy price.
This got me thinking, I know you can get a good Chilean Pinot noir so thought I would have a look around at the current range, anyone tried any of these?:
Or indeed a NZ Pinot?
