    Snoothrank:

    Light, bright and cheery, this wine has inviting candied cherries and quince paste aromas. In the mouth it's full yet juicy and fresh, with maraschino cherry and strawberry flavors, a splash of tangerine and a touch of lemon acidity to brighten up the palate. Read More

  • Here in New Zealand we are blessed with the finest "New World" Pinot Noir - as we say 'cheap as chips'. Come on over and try it - a Bucket List must. Especially the South Island. I'm not in the business - only an avid consumer!
