I'm very very fond of all NZ Wines full stop. This is a supermarket gem which is easily available, though will set you back 9 squidders.
Its worth it for this sip
The South Island Pinot Noirs are superb due to ideal cold climate terroir growing conditions for the small Pinot Noir grapes.
This Asda own brand is produced by Wither Hills in the Wither Hills area of Marlborough. Subtle difference from the Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough region. It is savoury and fresh with delicious raspberry and redcurrant freshness along with slight farmy savoury note on the nose. Very smooth and well balanced on the palate with a nice bit of texture and tannins.
