Russian Jack was a merchant sailor from Latvia, who found himself in New Zealand and became a legendary travelling fruit picker, living a nomadic life for over 50 years in the Wellington area. A statue dedicated to his memory now stands in the town of Masterton. A finely balanced Pinot offering ripe red berry fruit underpinned by a fresh crunchiness and savoury notes. Tannins are ripe and supple, polished and spice-infused by 9 months in oak. The perfect wine to pair with smoked duck.
