Two and a half glasses
External Reviews for Jelu Pinot Noir
A beautiful Argentine Pinot Noir, layered with vibrant red raspberry and fresh cherry fruit flavors, gentle black spice and a smidge of toasty oak notes. Perfect for light summer meals such as grilled tuna, chicken and black bean salad or pan-fried pork chops.
Be on the lookout for Pinot Noirs coming from Argentina. The quality is great and the price is right! Jelu is producing wines with no pesticides or chemical fertilizers, and they are applying for organic certification. Raspberry, cranberry and cola are prominent flavors, with nuances of spice and a touch of oak. A versatile wine, it can be enjoyed alone or with a variety of foods. I love Pinot Noir with grilled salmon or glazed ham.
Ripe blueberry and plum aromas with a hint of thyme. Juicy cherry and plum flavors are balanced by mineral notes. - Winery
The Patagonia region of Argentina is known for its world-class outdoor adventures. Little do most people know, however, that it also has the perfect climate for growing the capricious Pinot Noir grape. Jelu Pinot Noir is a hearty red wine, medium-bodied with wild raspberries and black cherries on the palate, and it will be just delicious tonight with a hearty meat dish.
