PINOT OF BEAUTY & OPULENCE... OUT ON ITS OWN at $19.99

Spectacular at $19.99!

Made to $50 standards... the more Opulent & Silky barrels of the Estates Flagship Pinot are declassified into Block 88 – it’s a thing of rare beauty at $19.99

"Twice a year Auntsfield allow us to offer their Block 88 Pinot Noir at a mindboggling $19.99 bottle... but it comes with a caveat... a 168-case maximum... so many will miss out on this spectacular offer. I say mindboggling because Block 88 is made to the same lofty $50+ standards as their flagship Estate Pinot Noir but is excluded from the final blend because its opulent flavours do not sit with the prettier, elegant and Burgundian style of the Estate.

The Wine...

Deep and beautifully rendered aromas of red and black fruits, with exotic spices, mulberry and cedar. Opulent and very charming palate with superb fruit weight and silky mouthfeel, bursting with fresh cherries, boysenberries and spice. An array of spices, cedary oak and subtle savoury notes reveal themselves in the lengthy finish. Block 88 always appeals to fuller style Pinot drinkers. Drink with lamb, five spice duck breast and gamey dishes between now and 2026.

This is Pinot Noir of rare flavour quality at $19.99 a thing of beauty and opulence... nothing to match it anywhere... so get shopping and grab your share at $19.99 bottle before our 168-case allocation runs out.

2020 Block 88 By Auntsfield Marlborough Pinot Noir

Always a sellout in the first few months... the more opulent, silky & rich barrels of the estate are declassified into this blockbuster Pinot Noir that has no competition at the price!

Description

Block 88 showcases what Marlborough can bring to the table in terms of Pinot Noir... in this case not only in quality... but magnificent (some might say outrageous) value. A big, muscular and brooding style of Pinot Noir which is atypically Auntsfield style as they always retain the more elegant, prettier and finer barrels of the Estate production for their $50 Estate release. They declassify the more opulent barrels that do not fit the Estate style into this mighty Block 88 release... it's beautifully silky, opulent and very harmonious. We buy direct from Auntsfield and have NZ exclusivity to Block 88 so our price is exceptional. Buy it by the case and keep a few bottles back... there's at least 5-6 years good drinking in this beautiful 2020 release!
