The Oddbins Take

Everyone agreed the old horse-drawn cart was just the vehicle to transport the Pinot grapes from vineyard to winery, but they failed to take into account the antique craftsmanship. The suspension springs were fashioned from the tough, ungiving wood of the Manuka tree, and the poor Pinot was jostled so roughly the grapes began to split.
As the sun hit the broken berries, a deep aroma of warm raspberries rose from the cart and the juice began to ferment. Happily, however, the resulting wine was so elegant that to this day the first crushing is done driving the grapes round in that very same old cart.
