Martinborough Vineyards Te Tera Pinot Noir 2021


A substantial Pinot with an unsubstantial price.  

We have been given the opportunity to promote this very good Pinot. If you can be bothered to read into the reviews of this.  You will be surprised how well respected this under $30 Martinborough Pinot Noir is.

"Made with the same handcrafted discipline as Martinborough Vineyard, Te Tera Pinot Noir 2020 is an expressive, vivid and eloquent interpretation of one of New Zealand’s most venerable wine regions.

Vivid dark cherries, strawberry notes and red plum characters jostle with a hint of spice to demand attention on the nose. On the first sip, your palate is greeted with soft juicy red fruit flavours and spicy notes in the background. The moreish tannins and a velvety texture make for a memorable finish." Winery

"Weighty, textural wine that is deliciously drinkable now but should respond positively to a little bottle age" 93/100 Bob Campbell

"Vivid aromas of dark cherry and blacy plums, anise and moderately toasty barrel scents, there’s adelicate lifted clay soil quality adding complexity and intensity. Fruity, plush and ripe, fresh and dry, fine velevty tannins with a chalky texture, plenty of acidity and core fruit flavours that reflect the bouquet. Delicious, youthful, taut and dry. A wine for the cellar or to accompany food. Best drinking from early 2024 through 2029+. A wine that punches well above its weight presenting excellent value." 93-94 Cameron Douglas MS
