Deep garnet hue with a fascinating array of aromas from mineral and floral to earthy/animal and baking spice/wild thyme. The fruit shines through on the palate with bright cherry, blackberry and mulberry complimented by a rich earthy vein. The savoury characteristics from a cool and exceptionally low cropping vintage are sensational when married with the classic Gibbston silky, fine tannins and electric acidity. Perhaps our most intriguing Pinot to date from this vineyard with vine age playing an important role in capturing a special vintage. This punchy young wine gives immediate gratification but it has all the hallmarks of a wine that is very worthy of cellaring and will show even more exciting features for many years to come. Grant Taylor, Owner & Winemaker of Valli

Dense, concentrated wine with plum, cherry, berry, a few crushed herbs and some spice and anise character. A very good example of the slightly cooler Gibbston style. Lovely wine in a complex and sophisticated style. Bob Campbell MW
