Porters Martinborough Pinot Noir 2014 $45 (4.5 stars)

It’s hard not to fall hard for Martinborough. Such a quaint, pretty little village surrounded by row upon row of vineyards – yet don’t be lulled into thinking there’s anyting quaint about it’s style of pinot noir.

It’s all about impression, big impression and that’s what this wine delivers in spades. Made by proprietor John Porter (when he’s not at his legal firm in Wellington) who planted 6.4ha of vines with his wife back in 1992 – this is ultra-spicy, tamarillo, truffle-and-toast saturated wine has a whack of good acidity meaning it’s here for the long haul.
