Praise the Kiwis

There’s a shop at Auckland Airport that sells T-shirts which say “I barrack for the All Blacks or anyone playing against Australia”. Bunch of losers I say. But there’s one thing you can give the Kiwis and that is they do know how to make a good pinot. OK, a great pinot.

In an earlier blog, I mentioned that the 2008 Ata Rangi pinot noir wasn’t a bad deal at around S$80. Robert Reeves from Wine Exchange commented “wait a bit, there’s a better deal coming” and indeed it has.

How good is this?

Ata Rangi / 2008 / Martinborough / Pinot Noir / S$69 at Wine Exchange Asia – Bob Campbell rates it 96 points and I see it’s selling in NZ at S$71.

But wait, there’s more! If you buy a case from Robert, they’ll throw in a bottle of the 2008 sauvignon blanc which is being sold separately at S$33.

Great start to weekend shopping.
