Pinot Noir 2019 – Black Market Deal #38950
- Medium bodied
Martinborough is known for its premium quality wines. That, of course, can come at a price that matches its prestige. Yet here we have an offer on a pinot at such ‘quaffing’ prices, you’d be mad to pass it up. This is one of the region’s most exciting producer’s nod to the weeknight tipple and it punches well above its weight. Showcasing all the elegant, savoury, fruit rich flavours and gentle floral aromas that draws the discerning drinker to this remarkable kiwi region; we recommend getting stuck into a glass or two right away. Best to pair it with a crispy roast duck with all the trimmings for good measure. This unfined, unfiltered gem has seen a good 12 months in oak and already has a deserving gold medal hanging around its neck.
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.
