Pinot Noir Opoka Cru


Pinot Noir Opoka Cru 2017 detajl

Wine description

Medium deep ruby colour, rich and pure aroma resembling dark cherry, Marasca cherry, bilberry, plum and blackberry, softly embraced by the rich aroma of vanilla, oak and smoke tones, forest brushwood, mushrooms and black pepper.

Dry, fresh wine with soft, distinguishing tannin, with elegant and full body. Highlighted tastes of dark berries, Marasca cherry, sweet spice and smoky tones. It leaves a very harmonic taste with a complexity of fruit tones and harmonised components.

With food

If only one wine is selected to accompany several courses, this wine is the perfect choice. It suits almost all food. It is a great companion to fish, poultry, vegetarian food, meat and venison. If the plates contain mushrooms as main or side dish, the pinot noir is the best wine to choose. Roast duck, meat pies or meatloaf are the best companion for this wine. However, it is not the right choice for very spicy and buttery dishes.
