Why do we love this wine?

Let’s be honest, there’s a lot to love about New Zealand. Those snow capped mountains are pretty easy on the eye, their lamb and dairy products are delicious and they produce some outstanding wines. We crossed the Tasman for this deal and are excited to report that their reputation for gorgeous pinot is indeed, well deserved.

Marlborough produces pinot with discernable savoury, medium bodied, spicy characteristics when compared to the more fruit-forward pinots of Central Otago. This however, is a beautiful balance of styles and a great introduction to the region.

It features the hallmarks of what we love about pinot; that fragrant red berry bouquet and an effortlessly soft and delicate palate that fans out in an array of red to black fruit. Vibrant and fresh, this is squeaky clean pinot, the likes of which you simply do not find for $10.

We talk about ‘approachable’ wines here at the ‘Fo - the kind of wines that are almost too easy to drink. Well this one is approachability personified and it’s coming at you with arms wide open. Pucker up!
