Trinity Hill Pinot Noir 2013: While New Zealand is still best known for sauvignon blanc, and Trinity Hill makes that, too, this winery in Hawkes Bay is hoping to make a case for NZ pinot noir. 

This attractively priced bottling ($17) is a fine choice for mid-week meals, providing varietal character (berry and cherry fruit) that’s easy drinking, especially at 13 percent alcohol. 

This pinot’s easygoing nature makes it perfect for food, especially fish or a light pasta with roasted cherry tomatoes. Even better, all of Trinity Hill’s vineyards are managed according to the New Zealand Sustainable Winegrowing Program.
