Product Description

"Rich garnet hue with aromas of rose petals, ripe cherry, mushroom, cardamom, and cedar on the nose. The palate has layers of bright red fruit (cherry, raspberry, and a hint of cranberry); dried herb (wild thyme, rosemary); and earthiness (mushroom, loam, cedar). Highly aromatic, richly concentrated and incredibly energetic - this Pinot Noir shows the amazing multi-faceted characters of Gibbston. Plenty of intrigue in its youth, this wine will continue to unravel and give tremendous enjoyment for many years." Valli Wines

Dark, deep ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, a little lighter on the rim. This has a softly full and well-concentrated and packed nose of ripe dark-red berried fruits harmoniously entwined with a layering of dark herbs and soft whole bunch stalk perfumes and a touch of undergrowth. The aromatics possess savoury earthy complexities, and the nose is quite complete in expression. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and lusciously vibrant fruit flavours of ripe, dark-red berries harmoniously melded with a layering of dark herbs entwined with savoury whole bunch stalk flavours and hints of undergrowth. Nuances of dark-red florals and minerals add to the complexity. The mouthfeel has fresh acid vitality with fine, grainy textures and tannin structure providing plenty of presence. The fruit sweetness carries the wine to a very long, lingering finish of savoury dark fruits and herbs. This is a rich, lusciously vibrant Pinot Noir with deeply concentrated flavours of dark-red berry fruits, dark herbs, whole bunch complexities on a well-structured palate. The wine is complete in expression. Match with slow-cooked game meat and casseroles over the next 8-10+ Years. Clones 5, 6, 115, 113, 114 and 777, from the estate ‘Gibbston’ vineyard, vines planted in 2000, fermented with 30% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 28 days on skins and aged 11 months in 28% new French oak. 1, 250 dozen made. 19.5/20 Raymond Chan
