    It’s back! The third vintage of this bargain buy Central Pinot from a star producer – Brennan wines.

    This is 100% Central Otago Pinot, 100% Gibbston Valley fruit made by Sean Brennan of Brennan wines (provider of fruit to other big names in the area like Peregrine), one of the stars of the region and producer of a long list of award winning Pinots over the years, including the  “Best Business Class Red Wine” for their B2 Pinot Noir served on board Air NZ to the Business Class elite.

    In 2020 the guys at Brennan ended up with a surplus of high quality fruit. After allocating barrels to their Brennan Pinot Noir ($60+) and B2 label ($30+) they found the fruit left over was of an amazingly high standard. Very confident the fruit would be good enough to go into either of those labels but content they had what they needed for the Brennan and B2 wines, they decided to branch out and release a new label – The Misfits!

    As for the label design itself. Well, that was the work of a young girl sitting next to Sean on board an Air NZ flight from Christchurch to Queenstown. Doodling on her iPad, Sean made comment about his need for a new label, hey presto 15 minutes later this young lass had come up with the new Misfits label (apparently Mum & Dad have been well compensated for her work…possibly payment in Pinot!).

    It’s everything we love about good quality Central Pinot – and not the juicy, easy drinking stuff you normally get in and around the $20 mark. This is a gorgeously silky, supple Pinot full of rich, dark berry fruit, spicy flavours. It’s got the obvious complexity to be cellared for a few years yet too.
