Camel Valley Pinot Noir 2010

Green apple freshness with zesty tang and full fruity flavour, this sparkling Pinot Noir from Camel Valley is luxurious and versatile – and at excellent value too.

This Decanter silver award-winner has been recommended by one of wine’s most influential writers, Jancis Robinson. Incredibly balanced, delightful length and plenty of acidity to make it perfectly refreshing it’s no wonder this is England’s flagship wine against the big boys over in Champagne. At £28.99 (Waitrose, Jan 2015), you can’t go wrong either – that’s excellent value for a bubbly of this standard.

Nice and delicate, with a pleasant level of alcohol, is paired with an explosion of bubbles which makes this wine very intriguing. Both delicate in texture but full and powerful tantalising fruit in the mouthfeel is simply marvelous.

I can’t emphasise enough: you should try this wine.

 

Serve with…

…most dishes, particularly risotto and roast dinners. It was my match with Christmas Dinner last year and I still think turkey is an excellent bet. It’s awesome with puddings too.
