Gibbston Valley ‘GV Collection’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 08-Oct-2018
Even ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim, with slight purple hues. The nose is elegant in proportion with good depth of dark-red cherry and berry fruit entwined with fresh and dark herbs and a little whole bunch stalk perfume. This has cooler spectrum elements that lend a fresh edginess. Medium-bodied, the palate is softly full with good mouthfeel and presence, with flavours of fresh red cherry and berry fruit intermingling with fresh and dark herbs, and subtle stalk elements. The fruit forms a good heart with moderate depth and concentration and is supported by light, grainy tannin extraction and grip with balancing lacy acidity lending energy and tension. The flavours carry to an elegant finish. This is an elegant Pinot Noir with red cherry and berry, and herb flavours on a grainy-textured palate with freshness. Match with tuna, salmon and poultry over the next 4 years. A blend of hand-picked fruit from 50% Bendigo, 46% Pisa and 4% Gibbston, fermented with 18% whole clusters on average to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 23% new French oak. 17.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $46.00
