2008 ARA PATHWAY MARLBOROUGH 
PINOT NOIR RRP $23

This is a pinot noir with sassy spice, savoury flavours and up-front fruit appeal. It is young and will soften out over time, but why wait when it tastes so good in a large glass right now? winegrowersofara.co.nz

2008 MOUNT RILEY MARLBOROUGH 
PINOT NOIR RRP $21

Made to drink now, as in right now, this pinot noir is soft, fruity and surprisingly full bodied. Slightly off-dry on the finish, it’s a solid everyday red when you feel like a special splurge. mountriley.co.nz

2008 STONELEIGH MARLBOROUGH 
PINOT NOIR RRP $23

At last – a pinot noir under $25 that tastes happy in its own skin. This wine is light, fresh and fruity and isn’t trying to be big, bold and brawny. It tastes better after a day of being open, so enjoy it over a couple of nights. stoneleigh.co.nz
