New Zealand Pinot Noir

New Zealand pinot noir is no longer just about Martinborough, Central Otago and Waipara. In this week's round up of a dozen of the best pinots from across the ditch, it turns out that two-thirds hail from Marlborough.

Marlborough has finally come of age as a pinot producer, as both vines and winemakers have matured. This region also remains more accessible than any other pinot destination in New Zealand. Half of this week's list is currently on the street under $35, and every one of these hails from Marlborough.
