#NWTW Week 23: Pinot Noir from New Zealand (Part Two)

New Wine This Week, New Zealand, Reds


So for week 23 we’re coming back to a new world classic. There’s plenty of grapes that are doing great down in New Zealand, but two in particular have become the country’s standard bearers in the world of wine. Nearly every wine drinker in the world has had a Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc in their life. The other is our NWTW, Pinot Noir.

Grown to great effect in both North and South Islands, but most wines in shops are from the South areas of Marlborough and Central Otago. I’ll be trying wines from both hopefully (bank account dependent!).

Here are my picks this week:


Majestic Wine
The Ned Pinot Noir, Marlborough

Sainsbury’s Central Otago Pinot Noir, Taste The Difference

Villa Maria Cellar Selection, Marlborough
£11.99 (25% off in store)

Spirited Wines
Two Rivers ‘Awatere Selection’, Pinot Noir

Mud House, Central Otago, 2010
NOK 179


Remember, these are just guides. Keep your eyes open for all the deals at your local shops. There’s usually quite a few knocking around on Kiwi “brands”.
