"Talk about a seductively smooth Pinot Noir, proving Nelson's potential for top Pinots from the Moutere area. This wine has huge appeal with its light body and full flavours of cherry and spice." - Joelle Thomson
"The palate is fruity and smooth with nicely balanced acidity and fine tannins. The wine is very easy on the palate with appealing fruit intensity" - Sam Kim
Superb new release Pinot Noir from Five Oaks. The wine is soft and gentle, with lovely cherry and light forest berry characters.
Pinot Noir this good should be sold for a lot more money, but we pride ourselves in delivering the best wine at the best prices all the time.

Chris We felt this was an excellent value Pinot, much better than expected. We matched it with roast chicken which was brilliant. In terms of tasting notes, this was different from a lot of the other pinots we've tried in that it was a lot fruiter (personally felt there was a bit of raisin in there along with the cherries). Overall good general purpose wine that could be matched with chicken or red meats. In fairness we're not big Pinot fans, but this one impressed us, so would definitely recommend to others. Permalink

James McAnally (Dunedin) A nice Pinot Noir, maybe a little on the light side - though this is not necessarily a bad thing. I found it easy drinking, yet intriguing. I'll return to this to experience and experiment more. Permalink

Rob McCaw I really liked the 2009 vintage, was very disappointed in the 2010, but decided to take a punt again! While not up to the 2009 it certainly has some depth to it however don't drink it as soon as you open the bottle or you will get a totally different impression. Permalink

Bargain Pinot of the Week - Fiona Beckett, The Guardian
"The Calusari Pinot Noir 2012 (13% abv), from Romania, delivers a satisfying hit of exotically dark, distinctively pinot-ish fruit ." Fiona Beckett "You may not have tasted a Romanian wine recently, but I suspect it’s only a matter of time before you do. The value for money coming out of that country is truly amazing." Olly Smith, The Daily Mail
A beautifully delicate pale garnet colour leads through to aromas of violets , dried cherries and hints of tobacco. Juicy, light and berry filled on the palate with a velverty finish.
Can be served cool with fish or room temperature with game or spicy foods. A brilliant example of the good quality wines now being made in this corner of Europe. Stunning value that would cost a whole lot more from elsewhere.
With a deep ruby colour and aromatic nose of plums, boysenberries, blackberries with some spicy oak notes. The palate is smooth and stylish with flavours of ripe fruit, soft tannins, oak and a long finish.
