Kiwi Pinot Noir rocks. And this is one of my favourite inexpensive examples. It’s made by Martinborough Vineyard, and comes from the wonderful Martinborough/Wairarapa region, not far from the capital city Wellington.
Martinborough Vineyard Te Tera Pinot Noir 2011 Martinborough, New Zealand
Supple, fresh and smooth with bright cherry and raspberry fruit. Midweight with nice purity of fruit and a hint of sweetness. Nicely textured, too. It’s just such a drinkable wine. 91/100 (£13.99 Majestic, if you buy 2 bottles, normal price a slightly elevated £17.49)
