Juicy, berried and full of life, this French addition to the Fat Bastard range is another highlight. Brimming with red fruit and soft tannins, it's a moreish light red that is just overflowing with character.

It's yet another bestseller in the making.

How's it taste?

This full-bodied pinot delivers on its name. Delicate aromas featuring black and red fruit with hints of orange chocolate, ramp up to a full flavoursome pinot noir, with lashings of dark cherry and stewed rhubarb notes. Good balancing acidity, tannin and palate persistence round out this French gem. Enjoy with the quintessential pinot partner, barbecued duck breast with quince paste jus.

How was it made?

Fermented in open Stainless Steel vats on skins for 14 days. Gentle pressing off skins via airbag press. Matured in an selection of old French oak. Bottled to Screw Cap to retain maximum freshness. Black Fruit, Red Fruit, Rich Pale ruby. Pinot Noir

Who made it?

The brainchild of Guy Anderson and Thierry Boudinaud, Fat Bastard Wines came into being via an exclamation, "Now that is what you call a Fat Bastard!" The comment came in response to a barrel of experimental Chardonnay that Thierry had left on lees for an extended maturation. Both Guy and Thierry felt that the wines had to be shared with the world, and so Fat Bastard Wines was born. Now, the pair work with wineries and vineyards from all over the world, sourcing fruit and juice from a myriad different regions and countries. But one factor remains the same: they make unapologetically full-bodied wines, packed with flavour and vibrancy.
