Sip Your Noir: Pinot Noir Wine Tasting

Sip Your Noir, the last of the Sip Your Style trilogy of events during Crave Sydney took place at a pop-up location at the Rocks in Sydney. Over 20 Pinot Noir wines from New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and New Zealand offered a diverse range of flavours and intensity.

The Moondarra Conception Pinot Noir 2010 was the standout wine of the evening with a concentration of fruit, cherry and berry being the most notable. The wine is on the lists at renowned restaurants such as Mr Wong, Aria, Quay and Hugo’s at Manly.

  1. Dear Corinne,

    The pinots from Mornington Peninsula, Tassie and Central Otago are definitely some of the best ones around this region.
