Two Pinots from The Co-op

Two wines from the Co-op's Truly Irresistible range

Like Kate Middleton, Pinot Noir is the more famous of a group of oenological sisters - Pinot Gris / Grigio is Pippa; the flighty, more obvious, less-classy one that flirts with the best man.

Truly Irresistible Pinot Noir from Casablanca in Chile, this is perhaps the second thing from south America that you would associate with the Co-op. Burgundian nose with ripe red fruits and farmyard; sweet, ripe, slightly stewed red fruits, soft, juicy texture and a pleasant finish with some warmness. A good, ripe entry-level no-tears Pinot.

Rather like a Fiat 500, it's intended to be instantly appealing, thoroughly enjoyable and inexpensive.
It's light enough to sip on its own; match with tuna carpaccio, duck or quail.

Truly Irresistible Pinot Grigio - made by the award-winning Yealands in Marlborough.

Golden sandy yellow, citrus and musky pear skin.

Ripe orchard fruits, sweet pineapple pieces,  baked apples and a hint of sweet spice and beeswax. Vibrant, savoury and persistent.


A versatile food wine, match with full-flavoured antipasti, such as roasted peppers or asparagus wrapped in pancetta.
