More about this wine from Gladstone, New Zealand
Martin and Tony live by two simple rules... First, "the wine must come first” and second "we must both like it." Martin Bonifant is the winery owner and 4th generation Kiwi. Tony Prichard is the estate's award-winning winemaker. And it is that kinda thinking and attitude that we love, so it's no surprise we're big fans of the vino produced at Tora Bay Wines in New Zealand.

Tora is the name of the local coastal area that is renown for its stunning scenery, and its rugged and remote coastline. It's also home to some seriously awesome vino. The nose and first sip are all about dark ruby red, ripe bing cherries. The pinot is light, delightful, and almost dangerously gulpable. At second sip, the wine gets more complex with the subtle notes of white pepper and baking spice.
How to drink it

While...

Feelin' fresh and sun kissed after a day at the beach while hanging on the back porch during the golden hour

Listening to...

This Old Heart of Mine by The Isley Brothers

Eating...

This pinot is a light delight that can pair with all kinds of summer fare like BBQ sauced up chicken wings or fresh tomatoes and mozz drizzled in EVOO and balsamic vinegar
