Pinot Noir 2018 – Black Market Deal #35532
- Textured, savoury
This family’s been in farming for over a century, and rather than beef they’re now raising the wine that goes with it. This pinot’s appropriately bold and versatile and able to handle its own against such rich food. It’s been cared for from a farm-first point of view: wild yeasts, hand plunging, extended maceration, minimal fining and filtration, and then aged in French oak for almost a year.
This Kiwi pinot is just damn good. Concentrated, succulent, velvety texture. Drinking fantastically now and for the next five years. It’ll be a good five years, then.
Part of our Women in Wine Collection
We are committed to ALWAYS having wines available that are made by women. In an industry that’s still dominated by men, we believe in celebrating the incredible work women are doing. Here’s to our Women in Wine!
This one has a female winemaker, but because it’s a Black Market wine we’re sworn to secrecy. She’s a deadset legend, though.
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.

Maori for 'glistening waters', Wairarapa is a small region around Wellington, at the very bottom of New Zealand's north island. It includes the subregions of Martinborough, Gladstone and Masterton. If the names Dry River, Martinborough Vineyards and Ata Rangi ring a bell, you probably need no further introduction. If they don't, it's time you were introduced to a diverse range of landscapes that produce a similarly varied range of scrumptious wines that Kiwis are rightly proud of.
