This Month’s Best Buy
This Month’s Treat Yourself
An irresistible buy, this is superior to many Pinot Noirs priced over $45. From estate-grown vines at Waipara, mostly planted in 2009, it’s delicious now, with deep colour, a beguiling fragrance, mouthfilling body and an array of cherry, plum, spice, herb and nut flavours, showing excellent complexity and personality.
