Tasting notes

  • Blueberry
  • Boysenberry
  • Cocoa

This Pinot Noir expresses black fruits like boysenberries and blueberries with
subtle floral notes and gentle acidity. The cocoa powder tannins and smoky
toasty notes add complexity with a generous earthy textural finish.

Pairing suggestions

How to enjoy our Pinot Noir

  • Beef & Lamb
  • Risotto
  • Mushroom

This wine pairs well with New Zealand lamb, but rich enough to enhance slow-cooked beef cheeks. For a plant-based alternative, try with mushroom or truffle-accented dishes to accentuate it’s earthy character.


Best served at: 15 °C / 60 °F

Recipe pairing

Grilled Rack of Lamb and Vegetables

Tasty and elegant, our Grilled Rack of Lamb and Vegetable recipe goes beautifully with the juicy red fruit flavours intermingled with hints of dried herbs in our EarthGarden Pinot Noir.



The dynamic climate of Marlborough helps to produce rich and ripe parcels of fruit. Warm oceanic days concentrate the sugars and cool alpine influenced nights preserve the naturally high acidity within the Pinot Noir grapes. Within Marlborough, sub-regions such as the Wairau, Awatere and Southern Valleys all offer specific expressions of Pinot Noir.
