It’s time to wean off winter’s BOLD reds to a lighter fare of wines. This medium body Pinot Noir from cool region of Marlborough, New Zealand is an excellent pairing with Easter ham.

New Zealand Pinot Noirs have characteristics such as lighter body, lower alcohol and soft tannins that resemble Burgundy and Oregon Pinot Noirs – a contrast to California’s fruit-forward style of Pinots.
