This excellent red wine produced by Portillo is made in the Uco Valley area of Mendoza. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by Salentein. Portillo Pinot Noir is a delighful wine, made from Malbec grapes. This screwcap wine is created with added sulphites. Like many wines in our list, this wine is suitable for vegan diets. Fresh, savoury, berry-fruit flavours that are excellent with light game, rich chicken and pork dishes.
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
