Buy of the Week NZ

Dashwood Pinot Noir 2017, Marlborough, NZD $19.99

The previous vintage of this wine won trophy for top wine at the 2017 Air New Zealand Wine Awards. This vintage seems unlikely to repeat that impressive feat, although it does deserve an award for offering good value. Ripe, plum and cherry flavours with a seductively soft texture and a satisfyingly lengthy finish. (Screwcap)
