Wairarapa. Try saying that three times fast! This part of NZ is more than just a tricky place to spell out, it is also home to some of the North Island's best Pinot Noir.

The Brunton Road Pinot shows some of the delicious ripe dark fruit flavours that Wairarapa is famous for. It's chunky, full of life and ready to go Pinot at a stellar price.

Expert Reviews

93 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitIt’s sweetly fruited and seductively complex on the nose showing spiced cherry, ripe strawberry, floral and earthy mushroom characters, leading to a beautifully supple palate that’s juicy and delightfully flowing. It’s elegant and smooth with a lengthy savoury finish. At its best: now to 2023. AU$30.00.

Who made it?

Lake Road Wines began as a partnership in the early 70's with the plan of investing in premium vineyards supplying the pioneering wine companies such as Penfolds, Corbans, Giesens and Villa Maria. As a family business, quality was always valued over quantity and through careful viticulture the vines produced many gold medals, cementing a reputation for premium wines. In the mid 2000's after more than 30 years of viticulture, winemaking was begun with the first wines under the Lake Road label released in 2008 and exported from New Zealand to Australia. The Lake Road mission is to create contemporary wines with an uncompromising view to quality, presented at price points that represent terrific value across the range. They achieve this whilst still maintaining a minimal environmental impact.

It’s a dirty job but someone has to try all these wines for you and over the past 16 years as a Personal Wine Advisor I’ve tried a few! I like to try a wine twice as wine can often taste different in different situations. So if you still haven't found what you're looking for, here are a few that I have tasted recently that might suit.
