Matthew Jukes, one of the UK's most influential wine writers, has released his 2012 classification of NZ Pinot Noir producers.

 

Compiled with Tyson Stelzer, it uses a 5-year movign average of quality to pick out the top producers in the land of the long white cloud.

 

Personally, I'd have Forrest, Neudorf and Nanny Goat rated above Villa Maria - but that's just me. Take a peek, see if you agree and maybe pick out something you think you should give a try.
