Akin Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016
The team at Akin believe in connections at Akin. Between family and friends, wine and food, grapevines and the soil. The Estate vineyards are testament to this, with organic practices and an extensive Kowhai rejuvenation project strengthening the web of ecology and their links with the land they love.
Spy Valley Wines Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015
You can't go wrong with Spy Valley; their wines have a long history of awards, and top many a restaurant wine list. Once again, their Pinot over-delivers on flavour, class and elegance. This is fragrant, multi-layered and utterly delicious. Enjoy it now or until the end of 2022 (but good luck on the will-power front).
Ata Mara Central Otago Pinot Noir 2017
Vic loved this at a blind tasting and gave it a high Silver-medal score declaring it, "Smoky and faintly herbal on the nose. Big, funky, sweet-fruited and rich on the palate"
