Gibbston Valley ‘Le Maitre’ Gibbston Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 15-Oct-2016
The only Gibbston release for the company in 2015, the ‘Glenlee’ site frosted. The fruit was picked early. No whole bunch as the site delivers enough complexity, the wine 11 months in 30% new oak. Dark, deep ruby-red colour with slight purple hues. This is classical Gibbston regional character with savoury red fruits, with complexing dark and dried herbs, earth and minerals, the aromatics showing excellent concentration. On palate the acidity shows a cooler spectrum, but the fruit is tight and black-red and sweet, with flavour ripeness. Complexing herbs, earth, mushroom even adding interest. The tannins are supple, and in actuality this is an elegant wine. 18.5+/20 Oct 2016 RRP $98.00
