Lagrein - Petite Arvine - Pinot Noir - Low Intervention

Lagrein - Petite Arvine - Pinot Noir - Low Intervention

When grown with care and passion, Pinot Noir is a fabulous and food friendly red. We have world class "cold climate" Pinot Noir from winemakers in Switzerland, Germany and Austria. Truly unique ones, too.

Despite some earlier references to a white Lagrein, the current red grape gets its first mention in 1526 and seems to derive its name from the Val Lagarina in Trentino, northern Italy.

Once again DNA analysis has helped enormously. Lagrein is a cross between Teroldego and an unknown variety which means it is a grandchild of Pinot and a cousin of Syrah.

It is mostly found in the Alto Adige and Trentino but there are also some plantings in California and Australia.

The red wines are characterised by a deep colour with strong berry flavours and medium tannins.

More rustic than fully refined, but a lovely chewy mouthful.

Pinot Noir has many other names, some of which may offer clues as to its origin - Blauburgunder, Bourguinon, Morillon and Savagnin Noir. It probably originates in France but there are many other theories which have it coming from Egypt, Italy and Germany.

The genealogy of Pinot is hugely impressive with a wide number of well known grapes coming from it particularly through its crossings with Gouais Blanc and Savagnin (not Sauvignon which are children of this crossing).
