The Pinot Noir wine grape is widely considered to produce some of the finest wines in the world, but it is a notoriously difficult variety to cultivate. Fortunately, the hard part has already been done for you.

This wine features black cherry and raspberry flavours with herbal, dark spice, and earthy notes. Silky texture and balanced acidity for an elegant finish.

New Zealand makes seriously excellent wines. Plenty of sunshine, moderate temperatures and strong diurnal variation (warm days and cool nights) are the keys to Marlborough’s piercing fruit intensity, strong varietal expression, and acid retention over long ripening periods. 

Pinot Noir is a little more delicate than other reds, so it pairs well with more delicate foods. Mushroom-based dishes work great, especially risotto. Goose, duck, venison, and lamb are also excellent choices. Sweet desserts, particularly with milk or dark chocolate, bring out the best in a Pinot Noir.
