Passion for Pinot Noir!


Why do we love it?

It is the undisputed king of Burgundy. It is the flagship variety of the most famous wine-growing region of the planet and one of the oldest varieties of the world. At the same time, it is the ultimate challenge for producers around the world, mainly because of the difficulty both in its cultivation and in its vinification. With sales going over the roof after a movie a few years ago, the beloved Pinot Noir enjoys immense appreciation worldwide and is the great challenge and the commercial star of the international vineyard.

While the difficulties and challenges do not scare Greek producers until now cultivating and vinification of the variety is minimal. Experimental, limited editions, scattered plantings only showcase its existence in Greece. We were looking for a Pinot Noir and in the rookie Solist 2016 by Rira Vineyards we discovered one of the best versions in Greece.

Cultivated on the ridges of the mountains of Aegialia, under the guidance of conductor, a specialist in demanding varieties, and renowned oenologist Panos Zoumboulis, the untamed Pinot Noir gave the best aspects of its character in red wine which although still very young, shows wonderful signs of evolving in time.

In one of the best expressions of the variety in Greece, the Solist 2016 Rira Vineyards fully justifies the new cult of Greek public and gives the perfect opportunity for those who want to join it!

If you have patience, it will evolve beautifully over the next 6 years. Just put a reminder somewhere ...









Tastes Like

Glowing ruby color in the glass.

Medium aromatic intensity with dominant aromas of strawberry, cherry, mint, and lavender, characteristic of the cosmopolitan variety. Subtle pepper notes, ink, and green tea gradually make their appearance while the bouquet is complemented by a unique sensation of fresh soil.

More expressive and juicy in the mouth, with moderate volume body, balanced acidity, and noticeable, rounded tannins promising that time in the cellar will work in its favor. In the palate wild strawberry, cherry and currant have the leading role followed by tea, cinnamon, bitter chocolate, and earthy notes. The long mocha aftertaste definitely impresses.
