This Double 5 Star Block 88 is Blended from the most Opulent & Silky Barrels of the $50 Estate Pinot Noir…

Same expensive winemaking, but atypical stylistically to the $50 Estate...

These opulent barrels are declassified into this “Heavyweight Quality” Block 88 – which we exclusively sell at the “Bantamweight Price” of $20.99!

Step right up, any wine that wants a shot at New Zealand's "best circa $20 Pinot" title, Block 88 will take the challenge anytime, anywhere. A big, muscular, and brooding style of Pinot Noir (atypically Auntsfield style… but typically Auntsfield quality), it's beautifully silky and very harmonious. Although made in the same way, it’s declassified from the Flagship Estate Pinot because its opulent silky palate does not fit the floral Burgundian style of the Estate. But Block 88 perfectly fits the palates of tens of thousands of Kiwi Pinot lovers.

Our Tasting Panel 95/100 Review…

Deep and beautifully rendered nose of red and black fruits, with exotic spices, mulberry and cedar. Generous and very charming with great fruit weight and silky mouthfeel, bursting with cherries, boysenberries, and spice. Block 88 always appeals to fuller style Pinot drinkers. Drink with five-spiced duck breast between now and 2028.

Direct from Auntsfield we have NZ exclusivity to Block 88… no middleman, our price is exceptional. Heavyweight quality… we can’t recall any Pinot Noir this Rich, Opulent & Silky at the Bantamweight price of $20.99!

To Bold & Rich for the $50 Estate… but perfect for most KIWI Pinot lovers. Enjoy, JEFF

2022 Block 88 By Auntsfield Marlborough Pinot Noir

Block 88 Pinot is a winner, better than Lotto!!! Well, it costs around the same price as a lotto ticket… but it is a guaranteed winner for Pinot drinkers with its heavyweight quality at a Bantamweight price!

Description

Step right up, any wine that wants a shot at New Zealand's "best circa $20 Pinot" title, Block 88 will take the challenge anytime, anywhere. A big, muscular, and brooding style of Pinot Noir (atypically Auntsfield style… but typically Auntsfield quality), it's beautifully silky and very harmonious. Although made in the same way, it’s declassified from the Flagship Estate Pinot because its opulent silky palate does not fit the floral Burgundian style of the Estate. But Block 88 perfectly fits the palates of tens of thousands of Kiwi Pinot lovers. We deal directly with Auntsfield on this wine and have NZ exclusivity, so the price is uber sharp. Buy it by the case and keep a few bottles back... there's at least 5-6 years good drinking in this!
