Description

  • Spicy oak
  • Floral notes
  • Bright red fruit
  • Silky tannins

"Made with 30% whole-bunches in fermentation, which adds a spicy dimension to this elegant and quite complex Pinot Noir while leaving access to bright cherry, fresh herb, slate-mineral and spicy oak flavours. Good now but worth waiting a few years" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Jan 2020

Glimmering garnet hue with a fascinating array of aromas from mineral and floral to earthy and spicy/herbaceous. The palate commences savoury with delicious dried herb and mushroom flowing into bright red fruit, with a long and spicy finish. The noteworthy “Gibbston” silky, fine tannins coupled with intriguing layers and intricate detail deliver a refined and classy wine from a truly eccentric growing season (hottest and wettest on record!). This wine personifies everything we love about Gibbston Pinot Noir: powerful, graceful, generous and above all – memorable. It is drinking beautifully at release and will continue to develop for 10+ years.
