Master of Wine Bob Campbell picked it as “Bob’s Best Buy” (March 2018) and said “$25 may not seem to be a bargain but the average price of Central Otago Pinot Noir over the past five years is $49.04 – at $24.99 less than half. That’s a bargain for a silver medal quality Pinot Noir….It’s streets ahead of most other wines in its price category”
