#winewednesday - Henschke Blanc de Noir


It's #winewednesday and time for another lovely bubbly wine.  Henschke's Blanc de Noir.


I've blogged about another Henschke wine before... the Gewurztraminer which I love.  But this is a new favourite that's rising in my opinion.  Made with 100% Pinot Noir these grapes come from Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills, not the Barossa.  It's a great dry drop but with a hint of berries and some spice.  A great yellow straw colour in the glass, and very easy to sit and sip.  It's a fabulous wine for a special occasion and priced right at around $50 per bottle.

On a side note I kind of love that there is a bottle cap on top of the bottle.  Not a deciding factor in why I'd buy it - but I love thinks like that.


Cheers

Sally
