Main Divide North Canterbury Pinot Noir 2020 $24.99
Made by the folk at Pegasus Bay and named after the mountainous backbone of New Zealand’s South Island, this superbly-priced pinot noir boasts a beautifully integrated red fruits and smoky, savoury notes. 40% of the grapes were fermented as whole bunches which injects some succulently chewy stem tannins into the earthy, tamarillo-tastic textures.
(Apologies for the fingerprints on the label. I was making stuffed mushrooms for dinner while tasting this, and my hands got oily. Woops)
