Incanta Pinot Noir

Who makes it?

Incanta Pinot Noir is a wine that once you have found it, you should buy more than a few. And with the price, you might be well able to afford to. It is also good to see Romanian wines appearing on our shelves. Apparently, these grapes have come from vineyards that have been active from 1400s that are now under the custodianship of a couple passionate about reviving Romanian wine on the international stage. 

What does it taste like?

A classic lighter bodied red that is a surprisingly intense wine. One that is distinctively pinot, ripe with cherry and strawberry fruit and bolstered with some cinnamon and vanilla richness. It really is as well balanced as it is well made. The tannins are supple and silky and shape the mouth gently long into the finish. 

What to drink with it?

Incanta Pinot is one of those light reds that can be lightly chilled. Either way, it is a good wine to enjoy with Asian flavours, or with a spice rubbed chicken. It goes down easily with many options.  

Cheese

Fresh cheeses like chevre and feta and bloomy cheeses such as Camembert or Brie.
