Keint-He Pinot Meunier - 2007

Pinot Meunier has been around since the 16th century and its origins are traced back to northern France’s Champagne region.  To this day it is one of the most populous varieties grown in Champagne.  It gets its name, (which means “miller” in French) from the underside of its leaves, which look like they’ve been coated with flour. 

Pinot Meunier is often blended with Chardonnay or Pinot Noir when making sparkling wines.  On its own, Pinot Meunier is a dry, fruity wine with a slightly bitter taste.  Its colour is light red or rose, and this crisp wine has an acidic tone with a slight smokiness.  It is a medium-bodied wine with a strong aroma of alcohol. 

The Keint-he Pinot Meunier was aged in French oak for 18 months.  A wonderful match for duck and other game fowl.  As with all of our wines, the Pinot Meunier is unfined and unfiltered and does best when the bottle is stood upright an hour or two prior to pouring.  … Pinot Meunier still wines are rare and a welcome treat.
