This quality-focused biodynamic producer's Petit Clos range is always great value. This vintage, an excellent one in Marlborough, gives particular bang for buck. The wine is the color of freshly squeezed cherry juice, and the vibrant nose offers oodles of plump summer berries just off the bush, along with stalky, floral undertones. The palate is equally exuberant, the juicy fruit wound by firm, textural tannins. A charmer of a wine for knocking back at a barbecue. Editors' Choice.

A very fresh, modern and spicy pinot that has abundant red and dark-cherry aromas with violets. Some gently herbal notes, too. The palate has a very smooth-honed blueberry and dark-cherry core. Smooth tannins and a nice build into the finish.
Freshly squeezed cherries and plums, our Petit Clos Pinot Noir is flush with abundant aromas of dark red fruits with a liquorice undercurrent. Exuberant and densely concentrated, the lively palate has notes of cherry liqueur and macerated plums which are all bound together with firm, textural tannins.
