I'm a dedicated Pinot Noir drinker, preferably anything from Central Otago or Martinborough in New Zealand. During Dry July I tried both the Plus Minus Pinot, and then the Shiraz when the Pinot was temporarily out of stock. I have to say, the Shiraz makes a lovely Pinot. I'm now purchasing the Shiraz instead of the Pinot because to me it tastes more like a Pinot than the Pinot does. It's not half bad. I'm more than happy with it as my general weekday tipple with dinner and saving my big Central Otago Pinots for the weekend. So, yes I'd recommend this Shiraz if you want to drink a nice AF Pinot Noir.
