Tasting Notes: Pinot Noir has been cultivated on these hills since the French monks planted it in the 12th century. They thought this land was special for pinot noir and chardonnay. The new Sanctum Lisica pinot noir is made with a hand-off approach in order to express the fruit and the terroir of Lipoglav vineyards in the glass. The wine shows a bright cranberry nose with complex vegetal notes when allowed to breathe. The mouthfeel is quite intense initially, but elegance and inviting drinkability are revealed when this earthy, medium body wine is paired with food.
Enjoy with stews, goulashes, sausages, roasted red meats, pulled pork, and broth boiled beef with an assortment of vegetables like onions, carrots, tomatoes, leeks, potatoes, celery, and cauliflower.
