WINE REVIEW: 2018 Duck Hunter Pinot Noir, Marlborough, New Zealand ($18)

by Andrew Chalk



New Zealand Pinot Noir will become a larger part of the Pinot Noir scene in this country as the wines establish themselves around the world. New Zealand winemakers, maybe the most free-thinking winemakers in the world, turned the world’s appreciation of Sauvignon Blanc on its head with their spirited, high acid, citrus-centric and herbaceous wines. Now they are set to do it with Pinot Noir.


This example is noteworthy for its softness. It makes for a harmonious, cherry and raspberry accented wine that is a pleasure to quaff or serve with its namesake duck, pork and veal.


Good value.
