Overoaked. Tastes like chewing tobacco.

This drinks well above its $10 price point. It's varietally correct with a light-bodied, fresh red berry and spice character

Odd. It’s easy to drink, light in colour, kinda ok... but it smells of sock and tastes like bland red fruit was left to kinda molt away. Meh.

Who knew they made Pinot Noir in New Zealand? This was both a surprise in varietal and in quality!

easy drinking - bit of orange peel and cinnamon on the nose. Solid for the price.
