Cherries, pomegranates, licorice, raspberries, hibiscus, cloves… drooling yet? It’s Pinot Noir Day so we’re gonna go ahead and take this opportunity to highlight two of the Pinot Noirs currently available in the NP Shop: 2019 Origins and Callen Schaub’s ‘Gaudère’.
Pinot Noir is one of the world’s most popular light-bodied red wines because of its red fruit, smooth finish and oftentimes spicy aromas. It’s on the lighter side of reds in terms of body and they tend to enjoy the same climates as Chardonnay.
So, let’s talk Nocking Point Pinots.
First up: Origins, a 2019 100% Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon, the fifth release of “Origins,” our flagship Pinot Noir. We love Oregon Pinot just as much as we love paying homage to our Origins. This fresh and juice, easy drinking beauty is low on sweetness but not taste. With notes of cinnamon, raspberry, pomegranate, rhubarb and red licorice, this Pinot Noir is an absolute fan favorite. It’s well balanced, round and light bodied, so it pairs with all weathers and all foods. With Sarrah and Andrew Harding’s mom, Victoria Harding, on the label, this wine really is all about our origins.
Second, we’ve got to talk about Gaudère. Also from Willamette Valley, this 100% Pinot Noir is an experience in every way. From the box to the taste, this wine has been curated by Nocking Point as the first ever Capsule Collection wine. Callen Schaub chose his wine and designed the label to take every purchaser on a journey where wine and art collaborate. Limited to only 1200 bottles, each individually numbered, Montreal-based abstract artist Callen Schaub named the wine Gaudère, a term that comes from the Latin verb meaning to rejoice or take pleasure in, with label art reflecting the artist’s signature method.
We take our Pinot Noirs very seriously here at Nocking Point and we want you to enjoy them. So if you’re reading this, enjoy 10% your purchase of 2 or more bottles of either/both Callen Schaub’s Gaudère and the 2019 Origins with code PINOTNOIRDAY*.
