ELEGANT. CHERRY. RED CURRANT. MEDIUM-BODIED
Marlborough, New Zealand- Easy drinking with aromas and flavors of red cherry, ripe red plum and red current with a hint of oak. Pairs well with pasta dishes, meat and hearty salads.
Fire Road Pinot Noir New Zealand Marlborough was made from grapes grown in vineyards that were saved from that fire, the fire was bad, but it could have been much worse. The brave residents put up a valiant effort in battling the blaze with whatever tools they had at their disposal, from hand-held hoses to buckets. Finally, a fortuitous shift in the wind saved the town and its wineries.
