Gibbston Valley ‘Gold River’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 06-Aug-2014
Hand-picked fruit, 85% from Bendigo and 15% Gibbston, fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 6 months in seasoned oak. Very dark, deep, black-hues, purple-red colour, lighter on rim, youthful in appearance. This has an up-front, full and deep nose of ripe blackberry and boysenberry fruits, nuances of jam, tar and violet florals, intermixed with whole berry confectionary elements and cooler tamarillo notes. Medium-bodied, up-front juicy, plush and sweet flavours of black plums and jam are intermixed with subtle herbal and tamarillo elements. The fruit is enlivened by lively, brisk, elevated acidity and carried by firm and grainy tannins, the flavours flowing with zestiness and cut to a light, dry and textured finish. This is a brisk, bright and juicy Pinot Noir with sweet jam and tamarillo flavours and a dry finish. Serve with pasta, pizza and Mediterranean fare over the next 4+ years. 17.5-/20 Aug 2014 RRP $30.00
