I know, I know, most NZ Pinot's are not that good especially at $47.99 but this one is. If you tasted it blind you would never guess it is from New Zealand. As you can also see it is a consistent high scoring wine from the Spectator which is not easy to do. I rank this one up there with my other favorite, Foley Santa Rita Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara. If you have the money, you can't go wrong.
