The Martinborough ~Wairarapa Valley, by contrast, has been New Zealand's first spiritual home for the Pinot Noir. Martinborough Vineyards, Voss and Ata Rangi are the stars with some very Burgundian versions of this variety, but their neighbours are doing well with it too. Ata Rangi's other strongest card is its Shiraz, while Dry River produces New Zealand's finest Pinot Gris The other name to remember here is Palliser Estate.

Pinot Noir is now the most widely planted red grape, and is flexing its muscles on the world stage with wines of scintillating complexity, diamond bright fruit and plenty of ageing potential, as thrilling and distinguished as the best of Carneros or Oregon. As well as being built on good, solid, raspberry fruit foundations, they also display a distinctly Burgundian reluctance to charm in their first flush, and nothing quite succeeds like a classy Pinot Noir that makes you do all the work. A fair amount of the Pinot goes into quality sparklers, whites and rose.
