Wine tasting expeditions – Noble Pig

Although the Noble Pig wines weren’t spectacular, the food pairings were well done (probably because their winemaker also has a food blog). They pair some whites with olive oil that they sell in the tasting room. They have a great blood orange olive oil that goes well with their citrus-hinted wines.

I was not a fan of their Pinot Noir, with a cigar box nose (which I like in a Mourvèdre but it didn’t work with the Pinot Noir) and a fruit bomb finish.

I did enjoy their Pinot Blanc’s, however. They were refreshing and crisp. The most memorable thing about their whites (both the Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc) was how distinctive the fruit notes were. I could taste the lime in their 2010 Pinot Blanc and grapefruit in their 2011.


You can find Noble Pig on Carlton’s main street. They are open Friday to Sunday, from noon to 5 p.m.
