Why do we love this wine?

Okay, I need a whole paragraph just to list the accolades the wine has received. Let’s start with the points: 96 from James Suckling and Sam Kim, 95 from Bob Campbell and 94 from Cameron Douglas. Then we have 5 Star ratings from Sam Kim, Michael Cooper and Winestate, plus a Top 100 spot at the Sydney International Wine Competition, and a gold medal in the Best Value category at the China Wine & Spirits Awards. Impressive, but how does it taste?

Heavenly, man. This is Kiwi pinot at its peak and given its age, it’s hitting fine form right now. Berry aromas give way to both fruit and savoury flavours, with dark fruit, cherry, liquorice, spice and earthy notes pushing their way onto your palate. With excellent cellaring potential, according to the critics, you can drink this now or leave it for another five years or so to really open up, but you’re going to be stoked either way.

Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article, absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
