Pinot Noir 2018 – Black Market Deal #38000
- Medium bodied
The group behind this pinot is one of the undisputed leaders of Martinborough and recognised for their excellence around the world. This wine is from their junior range - wines crafted with drinkability in mind, all great regional and varietal examples. The wine has been made with freshness as the driving force, and is fruit-forward and vibrant with a nose of cherry, plum and rose petal. It spent nearly a year in 25% new oak - so there’s a bit of vanilla and spice, nestled in a medium-body, with just the right amount of tannin.
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.

Anyone who's ever tried Martinborough pinot noir will shout its praises from the rooftop... at least, anyone who's not a Marlborough diehard. There seems to be a nice rivalry in the pinot stakes between the two regions, with Martinborough producing more structural (some would say "Burgundian") styles, as opposed to Marlborough's fruity flavour fests. If you see one, nab it. Also keep an eye out for the aromatic whites.
