    For a few years now we’ve been calling this guy a high flying Pinot at a rock bottom price! It’s what we like to call cheep-cheap-cheep – but only in price. There ain’t nothin’ else cheap about it. This is a wine that looks and tastes the part of a Pinot worth more.

    The 2017 went berserk picking up THREE major Gold medals, the 2018 went Gold in Sydney, and now the latest 2019 is ready to take flight. Using fruit from their Eyrie Vineyard in Marlborough’s Waihopai Valley, it’s barrel-aged for eight months before release.

    A medium bodied, deliciously juicy, supple Pinot with all those good cherry, berry and plum flavours. A heap of value going on here for a Pinot at this price.

    These guys are the proud sponsors of the Wingspan Birds of Prey Trust, which is why you’ll find the Karearea (NZ falcon) slapped on all of their labels.

    The Lowdown: 13.5% alc / 750ml / Screwcap
