I'm fully onboard with David's assessment... I've seldom met a pinot from NZ that I didn't like, but this one is several notches above average. The elegance and complexity of this wine makes it worth those extra few bucks. Canadians in general are rightfully envious of NZ's superior response to the COVID-19 pandemic, but our winemakers might just have a bit of additional 'pinot envy'!
