Okay, so looks like I need a whole paragraph just to list the accolades this wine has received. Let’s start with the points: 97 points from the NZ wine critic, Sam Kim, 96 points from James Suckling, 95 points James Goode. And the wine competitions have glittered the wine in gold too, awarding it medals from NZ Organic Wine Awards, Marlborough Wine Awards, NZ International Wine Show. Sound impressive, right? But, you probably want to know how it tastes.
Heavenly, mofo. This is Kiwi pinot at its peak, 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.
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.
