Uruguayan Pinot Noir is a bit of a hidden gem. While Uruguay is better known for its robust Tannat wines, the country’s Pinot Noir cannot be overlooked. Grown primarily in the cooler regions of the country, Uruguayan Pinot Noir offers a unique interpretation of this classic grape. The wines typically have a medium body and moderate acidity, displaying a charming bouquet of red fruits such as cherries, strawberries, and raspberries, along with subtle earthy undertones. The cooler climate helps preserve the grape’s natural acidity, adding a pleasant freshness to the wine. Perfect to pair with lighter meat dishes, like poultry or pork, it can also stand up to slightly spicy foods. It’s a delightful discovery for those who appreciate the nuanced profile of Pinot Noir.
