Barren Rock (Central Otago) 2013 Pinot NoirReview written for Barren Rock (Central Otago) Pinot Noir

Opened a bottle of this recently with friends. Went very well with red meat (bbq steaks etc) - only regret was that we didn't have more.... Great wine and well worth a try at this price.

I love the Benjamin wines and always get a few bottles each time i order. Whichever grape variety you prefer, they are all well rounded, and I feel are great value for money.

While I am not a big fan of Sauvignon Blanc, i have to say this nearly won me over. My wife assures me it is definitely one of the better ones she has tasted and at this price it represents pretty good value for money.

Have tried a few of the Alexia wines recently, and have been pleasantly surprised. Not going to set the world on fire, but very drinkable, especially at this price.

I really loved this case - great choice of wines, and if there is a variety you don't like, call when you place the order and see if it can be substituted. Syrah, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris excellent. Pinot noir, Sauvignon blanc good, and looking forward to the merlot next time round... Really good value case, and a great choice of wines.

Wow! This was a really smooth delicious wine which went well with barbecued lamb. To be honest i probably should have laid it down for a couple of years, but we had family visiting from overseas. I guess i'll just have to get some more...

Bought this on a whim, and it turned out to be a real surprise! Fantastic sparkling wine, and more than holds its own when compared to some champagne varieties. Will be ordering more when I next stock up on 'bubbles'...

Lovely easy drinking wine, somewhat typical of a merlot cabernet blend. Great to drink on it's own, especially on cold winter evenings in front of the fire, and also a good accompaniment to most foods, especially red meat, cheese and chocolate. Definitely recommended at this price.

Very nice, smooth drinking wine, at least on a par with some of the better bordeaux varieties, and a real bargain at this price. Need to order more to stock up for Christmas...
