2021 Scorpo Noirien Pinot Noir, Mornington Peninsula

Noirien’s price dips down to a mere £22.50 by the case, making this one of the country’s most competitively priced, seriously delicious Pinots. Noirien is Paul and Caroline Scorpo’s ‘entry-level’ red wine, and it is stunning, lively, juicy, ripe and feisty. It is also pinpoint accurate to its variety and its region! Noirien is an ancient word, dating back some 800 years, for the Pinot Noir grape variety. But just one sniff will inform your olfactory system that there is nothing remotely ancient about the fabulous quality of this dynamic wine. Pale in colour and burst-ing with wild cherry and rosehip notes, this is a keen-edged, refreshing and extraordinarily rewarding wine.
