    Russian Jack was a sailor from Latvia (not quite Russia, but pretty close) who lived a nomadic life in the Wellington area for some 50 years.

    He was well known for carrying his life in sacks over his shoulder and was a keen fruit picker for vineyards in the region. He became something of a local legend which is why you’ll find a statue of Russian Jack there in Masterton.

    Made by Martinborough Vineyards this is a medium bodied with plenty of soft, juicy red berry and cherry fruit flavours and lovely supple tannins you expect in a good Pinot. Let’s Jack it up!

    The Lowdown: 12.5% alc / 750ml / Screwcap
