Pinot Noir

This elusive and delicate light-bodied grape is a winegrowers dream, but can be difficult to achieve. Stubborn, yet flirtatious, Pinot Noir is tantalizing creating a beautiful dance between the grape and the winemaker. The resulting light red wine can be nothing short of spectacular. Loved for its red fruit and spicy characteristics, its also a great food partner.

Look for notable regions including Burgundy, France, Central Coast or Sonoma in CA, Willamette Valley in Oregon, and Pfalz or Baden in Germany as well as many other regions around the world in New Zealand, Australia, Chile, and Argentina.

Marlborough, New Zealand

Situated on the north end of the south island in New Zealand lies the infamous and marvelous Marlborough region. As a pioneering wine district, Marlborough is probably the most revered wine-producing region in this small country, accounting for 62% of all wine produced in New Zealand. Marlborough is quintessential white wine territory and a wine lover’s dream destination. Although many associate this region with the white grape variety Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough is also producing a wide range of other varieties including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Riesling. Wines produced here are known for their vivacious and intense aromatics and flavors. With more than 150 wine producers, there is truly something for everyone.

In 1985, inspired by the pioneering efforts of other Marlborough mavericks, the Glover family converted their farm in Dillons Point to vine. Being a third generation farming family meant that there was a natural ability to see the potential in the land for vineyards and ultimately the production of world-class wine. In 2007 Owen and Wendy Glover’s passion for growing grapes finally overflowed into the desire to release their own brand – Zephyr, inspired by the prevailing wind that cools their vineyards. The wines immediately created a stir in the United Kingdom with Tim Atkin writing “If I were to choose one Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at the moment it would be Zephyr.” With sons Jack and Ben on board (Ben is currently winemaker for the Accolade NZ Group), this family affair continues to attract the attention of sommeliers and the international press. From the value-driven Massey Dacta label to the Zephyr labeled wines, all wines are made from estate-grown fruit grown according the standards of the NZ Sustainable Winegrowing Association.
