    A nice photo collage of some of the people in the Kiwi Pinot Noir scence, I’m looking forward to your upcoming coverage of this major Pinot Noir event.

    Last week I read on wine searcher.com about what Matt Kramer said that currently only Burgundy can make ‘great’ Pinot Noir. Firstly of course is the question; what is your criteria for ‘great Pinot Noir; as wine like music, cuisine, art is all rather subjective.

    His other comment that I found strange was that atheists can’t make great Pinot, what?!

    Anyways I am curious as to what are your thoughts on this mysterious and divisive subject. I think the key element in Burgundian Pinot Noir is two things: terrior and history.

    It will be a long time before anyone can seriously challenge Pinot Noir from Burgundy; but saying that other regions can’t make great Pinot is going to far. I also think his listing of emerging Pinot regions was quite limited in that he didn’t mention Casablanca, Ahr & Baden or Plafz, Yarra Valley, Strathbogie Ranges, Franschhoek Vallery and the list goes on.

    Hope to hear your thoughts on this and looking forward to more coverage of Pinot Noir NZ 2013
