Tag Archives: one grape to rule them all
A great quote from UK wine writer, Matthew Duke, on pinot noir.
“You can’t plant it on flat land, it hates fertile soil, it likes hillsides, so it’s more difficult to work, it’s almost as if the vine looks at you and says, `I don’t want any mechanisation, I want you and your hands, and that’s it’. It breaks your back and pisses you off. You can’t do it in volume,”
Personally it is the one grape to rule them all.
