4.5 Stars Michael Cooper
In stock
A ripper of wine and a wine that will make all the big brands at $40-$50 plus take note as it outscored a huge number of these in the NZ Wine Writers Pinot Noir Tasting scoring a 93/100. Also with 4.5 Stars from M.Cooper, 93/100 from Cameron Douglas, 92/100 from Bob Campbell and 93/100 from Wine Orbit, this feels exactly like what it is, a quality Martinborough Pinot from a boutique organic producer for a song. What is even more appealing here is the bright young fruit which offers a purity, harmony and weight that goes well beyond the $20 price point. Drink now or stash it for a while- its a true pinot steal.

Its Origins

Two precious parcels of land are home to Luna Estate’s Martinborough vineyards - Bluerock and Eclipse. From ancient seabed to river terrace, our two distinct terroirs allow us to create wines that truly reflect our place. Proudly Pinot Noir focused, we also produce delicious Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Rose, Chardonnay and Syrah.

What The Critics Say

93/100 Winerater.co.nz

"A gorgeous perfume with great intensity. The nose shows attractive berry characters, roses, violets, strawberry lollies, with red liquorice, dark chocolate, and meaty elements. A dense, ripe, fleshy Pinot with genuine concentration, richness on the mid-palate and dense, sinewy, dusty tannins that linger. Enjoyable wine with weight and balance."

4.5 Stars M.Cooper

'Offering excellent value, the 2020 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown at two sites (mostly young vines in the Blue Rock Vineyard), and oak-aged for 10 months. Bright ruby, it is mouthfilling and vibrantly fruity, with good density of berryish, plummy, spicy flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, and ripe, supple tannins. Well worth cellaring, it should break into full stride 2023+."

93/100 Cameron Douglas MS

"Hallmarks of the Wairarapa and Martinborough with a bouquet of silty mineral laden soils, dark berries and old strawberry compote. There’s also scents of moderate toasty barrel with vanilla and clove moments then a dark rose highlight. On the palate - youthful with a core of fruit and contrasting tannins, moderately firm textures and fine acid line with a fine silty soils and quietly savoury complexity. Well made, youthful and needing some cellar time. Great with food right now or best from late 2022 through 2028." Drink 2022 - 2028
