在十年前，如果問我們關於新西蘭Pinot Noir 葡萄酒的意見，我們並不會特別推薦。在近 年，卻開始有不少優秀的新西蘭Pinot，例如 某些Central Otago的精品酒釀。但其實傳 統的Marlborough產區也開始釀造出優質的 Pinot。Bishops Head酒莊位於Waipara Valley， 同時釀造美味的Riesling及Pinot Gris。他們的 Pinot正好代表著新西蘭葡萄酒的新浪潮。
If we were asked 10 years ago about comments on pinots from New Zealand, it would be negative. But in recent years, we are seeing a lot more outstanding pinots from New Zealand. Besides the very boutique and sought after region of Central Otago, the Marlborough is making nice pinots now. And then we have Bishops Head estate, coming from the Waipara Valley, which are making exceptional pinots and whites such as Riesling and Pinot Gris. This pinot is a very good example of the new wave of great New Zealand wines.
