WINE OF THE WEEK: Tierra Y Hombre Pinot Noir 2015, Casablanca Valley, Chile


£8.50, Marks & Spencer


I was going to recommend Stepp Pinot Noir from Germany this week, but there's been a delay with the delivery and it has yet to reach the shelves, so I'm recommending the latest vintage of an old favourite from Chile instead. It's no exaggeration to say it has to be one of the best value Pinot Noirs in the world and each vintage is just a little better than the last. This won a gold medal in the Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA is the world's largest and most respected international wine competition). So what's so good about it? It's classically beguiling Pinot Noir with succulent, red-fruit purity – cherries and plums with just a hint of nutmeg spiciness – a soft, savoury undertow and the lightest touch of nutty, smoky oak. It can take food with a little spice but doesn't want to be overwhelmed by anything weighty, so serve it with something like tuna, salmon or chicken. Equally, you could drink it on its own.
