Massey Dacta Marlborough Pinot Noir 2019 $18

Finding great pinot noir for under thirty bucks isn’t that easy to do, so finding a good-as-gold example roaring in at under twenty is cause for celebration!  Crafted by past chair of the Pinot Noir Celebration (that’s how dedicated he is to pinot noir!), it’s named after the red Massey Ferguson family tractor – known to the kids as  the ‘Massey Dacta’.  And like that farm workhorse, it gets the job done and creates an immediate impression, rides powerfully over your tastebuds and leaves a deliciously smoky aftertaste.  If you’re new to pinot noir, then there’s no better introduction.
