Big Sky Martinborough Pinot Noir 2021 $45

Katherine Jacobs and Jeremy Corban are the evil geniuses behind Big Sky, one of the most excitingest and one of the most tiniest producers in all ye olde Martinborough. Their vines grow high on the rocky terraces above the Huangarua River and the fruit ripens under the baking hot Wairarapa sun to produce soothing, gamey, rhubarb and cherry-laced pinot noir with an earthy, meaty mid-palate. Dry and spice-drived, the tannins have great texture and tension making it magic with smoked eggplant salad. Drink now – 2030
