Pinot Noir 2011 – Black Market Deal #35355
- Medium bodied
We love getting access to an aged pinot from a top producer from over in the South Island’s Marlborough region. Frankly, we are predicting a feeding frenzy from eager mofos keen as beans to take advantage of this cellared beauty and experience all the joy that an aged pinot has to offer. With a classic Kiwi medium body and a whack of French oak (a third of which was brand spanking new) for 16 months, a careful selection of specific clones and a dash of whole bunch fermentation, it’s been built to stand the test of time. Lashings of developed wild berries stewed together amidst some seriously deep yet mild spices and a wonderful finish of dried florals, you’ll have a field day pairing this with an array of versatile dinner options (or lunch, no judgement here!).
What is a Black Market deal?
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.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Marlborough is the famous region that has rocketed NZ into the world wine scene. For good or for bad, the wine that hails from here is distinctive, exploding with aromatics and quality and balance are only improving. Located at the top of the South Island, there is no doubt that Marlborough is the epicentre of the New Zealand wine industry - a region synonymous with some of the world's best Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The distinctive conditions of Marlborough - warm, sunny days and cold nights allow winemakers to unleash the unique expressions of grape, not seen anywhere else in the world.
