She says: This wine to me was a bit like a yo-yo.
He says: This wine was a major letdown for me given the price and all the buzz in the Lower Mainland about this producer.
She says: Having been unimpressed with other Malborough Pinot Noir I’ve tasted, this wine proved to me that they can deliver on this finicky variety.
