Wine of the week: Tesco Finest Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Wine glorious wine, with hot sausage and mustard.

As the nights grow cold and green leaves turn amber and red we have an Oktoberfest alternative for you this week in the shape of a 2016 Pinot Noir that pairs wonderfully with classic Bavarian cuisine and other autumnal dishes found closer to home such as light game dishes and pies.

Hailing from the renowned Australian region of the Yarra Valley this is a classical bright and complex wine that will ease you in to the chillier months.

It displays aromas of red fruit with gamey and subtle oak notes. The palate is soft and elegant with fine tannin and silky finish.

So ditch your stein and pick up a bottle from your local Tesco, paired with white meat, game, lamb skewers or soft creamy cheeses such as Brie.
