Foley Wine Club Drop of the Day - Te Kairanga Runholder Pinot Noir 2017

Te Kairanga Runholder Pinot Noir 2017 is a perfect match to the bold spices of our our Hand-Pulled Noodles and Cumin Lamb.

This Pinot Noir is sourced from vineyards on the original land holdings of 'runholder' John Martin, the pioneering namesake of Martinborough. Rich and complex notes of cherries, aromatic spices and signature Martinborough savoury notes won the drop Gold with 95 points at the Decanter World Wine Awards last year. It matches our Hand Pulled Noodles with Cumin Lamb perfectly.

Bonus points (literally), you can earn 180 'Foley Points' + 25 Bonus ‘Drop of the Day’ points when you buy it from, then redeem those wonderful points for vouchers from a host of local favourite eateries including Soul, Azabu, Jervois Steak House and Andiamo in Auckland, Boulcott Street Bistro, Shed 5 and accommodation at Bolton Hotel in Wellington, and many more around the country. Or can use your points for a discount off your next order – a great way to support local, drink great wine and do a bit of shopping on the side.

Sign up today and start turning that great Chardonnay into dinner at Ostro, that Rosé into a new pair of boots at Mi Piaci, or that Pinot Noir into a luxurious stay at Wharekauhau Country Estate. The Foley Wine Club is home to a collection of iconic wineries including Mt Difficulty, Martinborough Vineyard, Te Kairanga, Vavasour, Grove Mill and Lighthouse Gin.

Featured today, Te Kairanga is an important part of the Martinborough wine story, established way back in 1984. As mentioned above, their vines are planted on land that was originally owned by the founding father of Martinborough, John Martin. While their land is steeped in history, Te Kairanga's winemaking is very much focused on the future; “to fully realise the potential of this incredible piece of land,” according to Winemaker John Kavanagh. Te Kairanga John Martin Runholder Pinot Noir is a great example of that commitment to doing the land justice with a sensational result.
