About The Pack

Finding good value Pinot Noir made by true artisan producers is a difficult thing.

Pinot's delicate nature means it needs to be nursed to bottle. That extra care takes time and money, hence the soaring price of the best examples in the country. This pack proves you can still find top-notch Pinot Noir under $30 in Aus.

These six Pinot Noirs are from some of the top Pinot producers in the country. These are their best value offerings. 

A no-brainer pack for the Pinotphiles out there.

2018 Stoney Rise Pinot Noir

94 points
"Finesse combined with high drinking appeal." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Joe Holyman is one of the leading lights of Tasmanian wine.

His Stoney Rise Pinot Noir always massively over-delivers, and this is no exception. With a wealth of experience from across the global wine scene, Joe along with his wife Lou, have become the proprietors of the old Rotherhythe vineyard in northern Tasmania. From a vineyard that needed some serious TLC, they have been producing some top shelf Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for over a decade. This is serious stuff.

The Stoney Rise range, as James Halliday once observed, is all about "focusing on fruit and early drinkability", immediate drinking pleasure is the goal and boy have they nailed it here. It comes from 50% estate-grown fruit and 50% from Joe's growers, and it's a vibrant, refreshing, effortless style of Tasmanian Pinot.

More complexity than you'll almost ever see for under $30 and one of Tasmania's true bargains.

2019 Arfion Spring Pinot Noir

Dave Macintosh loves his Pinot Noir in all shades and colours. The thirst for a young, vibrant 'nouveau' style drove him to release this, the Spring Pinot Noir.

For insane drinkability in a Pinot Noir, that's loaded with character, this is one of the tastiest of its style getting around.

It does the job Dave wanted - its irresistible from first sip.

A bouncy Pinot Noir brimming with jubilant fruit, this will keep you coming back for more and more and more.

Knock a slight chill into it and guzzle with abandon.

2018 Garagiste Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir

Barney Flanders loves Pinot Noir, and his 2018 release of the value-packed Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir is another home run.

Made from a blend of fruit from Barney's outstanding single vineyards, with the best fruit from the Teurong and Balnarring Single Vineyard wines making their way into the blend this year. This represents the essence of Mornington Peninsular Pinot Noir.

Just 10% whole bunches used in the ferment this year with the emphasis squarely on ripe Pinot fruit, showcasing the impeccable vineyard management and winemaking of this Mornington guru.

It's unfined and unfiltered, with plenty of savoury complexity to balance the finish.

Value for money wise, this is an Australian Pinot Noir star.

2019 Two Tonne Tasmania Ziggurat Pinot Noir

The  Ziggurat Pinot Noir from young Ricky Evans is a delicious, highly-gluggable version of Pinot Noir built for early drinking.

This wine is made from two different vineyards that Ricky manages. The fruit from these sites is more red fruited and juicy than his more moody and savoury TMV or Dog & Wolf Pinot Noirs. This fruit is primed for this Cru-Beaujolais-inspired style of wine that Ricky loves to make and drink.

This is about trying to find different expressions of this hallowed variety. Ziggurat is made to be a delicious early drinker, with Gamay-esque mouthfeel and tantalisingly vibrant flavours.

It's downright delicious.

2018 Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Pinot Noir

Mac Forbes is passionate about Pinot Noir, and his 'Yarra Valley' release is the perfect way to get to know his unique style.

It comes from declassified portions of Mac's six single vineyard Pinots, taking on characters of each to present a beautifully balanced wine that reflects as good as any other $30 wine what quality Yarra Pinot is all about.

This gives the drinker an immediate insight into what Mac Forbes Pinot Noir is all about. He stands for quality, and this characterful Pinot this is sensational value.

Tiny volumes were made so get in quick!

2018 Lethbridge Menage a Noir Pinot Noir

Dr. Ray Nadeson is a master craftsman of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in particular (although he makes a mean cool climate Shiraz!). His unique wines have led the way for many other natural winemakers to follow, with technique and precision leading his low-intervention philosophical approach.

'Menage a Noir' is Ray's 'entry-level' Pinot, and as far as Pinot Noir goes it's about as good value as it gets at under 30 bucks. It's made from multiple parcels of fruit from various Geelong sub-regions and is designed to be simultaneously approachable and interesting.

This is the most user-friendly release of this wine in a number of years, the move toward more fruit-forward, bright and friendly style of Pinot Noir clearly doing wonders for the label. This is the perfect wine to get familiar with this standout Geelong producer.

Good selection of medium weight Pinots at an accessible price

The Pinot selection was well weighted for both quality & value for money which is always a challenge for this varietal.

FaQs

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
