2006 Wairau River Homeblock Pinot Noir....$15.99
Compare to $28 on The Wine Advocate
Marlborough, New Zealand
"The 2006 Homeblock Pinot Noir is very impressive, a ripe but well-defined nose with red cherry, raspberry and wild strawberry, the palate displaying ripe tannins, a lithe, supple mouthfeel – very natural with cherry and wild strawberry on the earthy finish.

Pioneers of the Rapaura District in Marlborough having cultivated vines there back in 1978, Phil and Chris Rose supplied grapes to other growers before establishing Wairau River in 1991, their wines 100% estate grown from their five holdings with their own winery constructed in 2002 alongside a much-improved irrigation system."
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate
