BRILLIANT PINOT NOIR VALUE FROM OTAGO / CANTERBURY.
We are always on the look out for parcels of inexpensive Pinot Noir that outperform our asking price and it's been years since we have seen a Pinot from the deep South at this price point. This is brilliant buying, and after one glass, you'll know why the high fives were flying at Advintage HQ when we cracked this deal.
Vinted for the demanding international market by a famed Waitaki Valley producer*, Snow Bird is a blend of fruit sourced from the Waipara Valley in North Canterbury and the Waitaki Valley in North Otago. In the classic style you'd expect from these southern regions, it's a very satisfying Pinot with a palate that is chock full of dark savoury cherry fruits and soft rounded tannins - and at our $14.99 deal price it's brilliant buying.
*Suffice to say if you knew who made it, you'd double your order but part of the contract in picking up this remarkable deal was that we'd keep the producer's name under wraps.
