What’s in the glass March 11th

Goldridge Marlb PN 2011

Goldridge Estate Marlborough Premium Reserve Pinot Noir 2011 – $

Bright carmine colour; light red fruits expression on the nose; some savoury florality. Uncomplicated raspberry and red cherry flavours to taste; soft tannins. Didn’t expect as much from this Pak‘nSave steal. It is good value, perhaps reduced as much as 50%. I read from old news stories that the label was involved in a liquidation stoush with Matakana Wines a couple of years back…hopefully it’s trading out of a bad situation and will continue.

Went quite well with the Island Bay Butchery lamb chops.
