Purple Owl is no ordinary Pinot Noir – grapes for this juicy berry red are sourced from the finest vineyards on California’s Central Coast. A gentle pressing and careful vinification capture all its layers of vibrant cherry and raspberry fruit.
Purple Owl is as pretty as its striking watercolour label. Named after the shaggy purple flowers that carpet much of central and southern California, like masses of tiny purple brushes, it’s a special wine, too. No other grape achieves quite the same silky elegance as Pinot Noir, and here it achieves a delicious ripeness. Famed for the fabulously expensive red wines of Burgundy, as well as the mesmerisingly supple Pinots of Oregon and New Zealand, this time Pinot Noir reaches a peak of intense fruitiness in California’s Lodi region. This is a glass of wine Pinot fans are going to love for its silky texture, and its generous berry flavours and soft touch of oak. A fine match with chicken in red wine or spicy roasted vegetables and couscous.
"Lovely pinot noir - best wine so far"
