UK agent PLB is to extend its range of wines from New Zealand.

PLB, which sells wines from countries including Chile and South Africa, said it would add a Pinot Noir Rosé to its Riversdale range and a Pinot Noir to its Fairfields label. The newcomer to the Fairfields stable will go on sale in May.

"New Zealand is well known for its excellent Sauvignon Blanc, but it also produces a high-quality red wine and demand for that is growing," said Claire Summersby at PLB today (13 March). "As we were able to source a premium Marlborough Pinot Noir we wanted to introduce these to the ranges."

The wines are on sale from GBP6.99 (US$13.49), competing with New Zealand wine brands including Nobilo, Montana and Villa Maria.

PLB handles wines including Chileno and Dumisani from South Africa.
