100% organic pinot noir in all its glory is exactly what you get with this southern stunner.  Such a pretty, ballet-shoe pink colour, aromas of just-ripe raspberry, watermelon and fleshed out with soft, creamy, roast stonefruit notes to round out the finish.  Great length of flavour too. www.peregrinewines.co.nz

I’m really not a fan of frilly, femme-driven labels and packaging, but the wine inside more that makes up for it.  Rich, cherry-laden and loaded with red berry and blossom notes, it’s full, generously proportioned and fun.  She’s not necessarily that elegant, but she’ll definitely show you a good time. Widely available.
