Everyone has heard of Pinot Noir.
We might be exaggerating here, but not by much. The varietal is without doubt one of the most famous of all- helped in no small part by its appearance in the movie Sideways. And, no doubt, its sultry character.
If there ever was a fine wine that could be described as seductive, emanating a kind of liquid sex appeal- Pinot would be it.
Imagine brightness tinged with earthy sensuality- smouldering, burning slowly as it consumes the senses bit by bit. Rich, complex and enigmatic as the deepest fathoms of the sea. Timeless elegance mixed with an intoxicating, almost animal wildness. Familiar, but enigmatic. An affair of passion. A marriage of contradictions.
We might not have fallen in love with Pinot Noir, but we have certainly been seduced by it.
And now, Pinot Palooza, Australia’s largest Pinot Noir festival, will be coming to Singapore to show us what seduction really is.
