Alexis’ July Selection

This month, as a nod to the new Wine List in New Street Grill, Alexis has selected four American Pinot Noir wines in his monthly recommendation:

1. La Crema SC 2011, £23

Vibrant red cherry aromas that mingle with alluring cola, sweet spice and coffee bean tones.  Drink on its own or with lamb.

2. Byron Santa Barbara 2012, £22

Wonderful cherry flavours, typical of Santa Barbara pinot noir.  Fantastic value for a first-class wine.

3. Wild Ridge 2011, £44 (available in-store)

Berry and stone fruit (plum and cherry) and complemented by orange zest, cedar and green tea.  Drink now or keep for an investment.

4. Cambria Julia’s Vineyard 2011, £26 (available in-store)

Juicy, expressive and layered.  Impresses for its silky fruit, perfumed aromatics and overall balance.
