Pinot Noir; she’s a minx and a devil in disguise. With a perfume seductive and flavours alluring, she’ll make you cry with joy and weep with pain.
A prima donna in the vineyard she’ll perform only when conditions are perfect; cool climates, slow ripening, but reward you with the performance of a lifetime.
Pinot Noir is fickle but she is charming, she is temperamental but bewitching. She is the Fickle Mistress.

As a seamless blend of the most renowned Marlborough sub-regions, this Pinot Noir is truly captivating.
For many people, Marlborough, located at the top of the North Island, IS New Zealand. After all, it was Marlborough, and its acclaimed Sauvignon Blanc, that brought New Zealand to the wine world’s attention. But although Sauvignon Blanc remains the area’s flagship, Marlborough’s diverse meso-climates and sub-regions also offer pure, intensely flavoured Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and aromatic whites.
