Prince of Pinot Impostor!

My friend, Dale Bartley, a home winemaker of little repute with a fondness for Zinfandel (Zin from Dale), was traveling to Middle Earth recently and found a Prince of Pinot impostor at Rockburn Winery in Central Otago. Malcolm Francis, Rockburn’s award-wining winemaker, had a copy of a publication to prove his provenance. I was aware of only one other impostor, Larry McKenna, of Escarpment Winery in Martinborough. Don’t be fooled by these tricksters. There is only one true Prince of Pinot.
