WINE REVIEW

This brand new limited release was launched to celebrate Greyfriars’ local history and, in particular, WWII radio operator, Noor Inayat Khan. NOOR 2020 is a blend of Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.

I found it a little closed on opening, but it loosened up with a little more time, releasing aromas of green apple, citrus, white peach, and a flinty minerality.

To taste, again it’s immediately the crunchy green orchard fruit and citrus flavours that stand out. The combination of part Malolactic Fermentation, part oak barrel-ferment brings an evolving structure to the wine. A slightly grippy texture and some light nutty, savoury tones add to an otherwise strait-laced wine.
