Why is Pinot Noir from Martinborough special? Well, some say it's the birthplace of Pinot Noir in New Zealand, but there is also some geographical evidence that is important to consider, Martinborough sits at 42° south, a similar distance to Burgundy from the equator. As you may have noticed we have a tendency of referring to extremely drinkable wines as 'smashable'. This doesn't mean we want to smash the bottle necessarily, it's more that once we open this wine, we know it won't be long before we're looking for another one. So our advice is, get two of them just to be safe.
