Buy of the Week NZ

Mount Brown Grand Reserve Pinot Noir 2016, North Canterbury, NZD $29.99

A slightly more concentrated and structured version of the regular label with similar ripe plum, dark berry, spice and anise flavours. Rich and flavoursome red in a sumptuous, almost “fruit bomb” style supported by spicy oak. A generously proportioned wine offering excellent value at this price. (Screwcap)
