This is just an amazing Pinot Noir from Marlborough, New Zealand.

Great pinot noir. I am going tomorrow to buy another Peter Yealands wine. The difference from other vineyards is the sustainability focus of Peter Yealands. Take a look at his website at Peter Yealands Winery.
I am now discovering more and more good wines every other week. There is more research involved of course, but the result has been almost always fruitful. The challenge has been to relate what the reviews say with what actually one experiences. For instance, the Peter Yealands Pinot Noir was given a review with a mention that the wine resembles a “berry herbal tea” (Wine Enthusiast review). I could detect no such thing, but I did find that the wine has “lovely fruit aromatics” for instance.
Lovely wine with simmering impact over the evening, especially with cheese platter and some pasta. You will find that this Pinot Noir is a complex wine with some unique flavours and taste. I will surely buy one more of this exact same wine, while I explore more of the Peter Yealands magic sustainable wines as I go along on this Marlborough exploration.
Enjoy your wines responsibly.
