5 Stars - Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
"Deep ruby-red, moderate transparency, slightly lighter on edge. The nose is softly full and enticing with complex aromas of forest floor, crushed herbs, dried hibiscus enveloping delicate spice, cherry and plum. Medium-bodied, silky on the entry with concentration, scents of cherry and young plum entwined with crushed herbs, hibiscus, liquorice, forest floor and spice. The mouthfeel is supple and silky with fine powdery tannin, lightly veiling the palate; lacy, captivating acidity carries a very long, exquisite finish. The wine is harmonious, shows depth and complexity of delicate aromas, capturing the scent of Gibbston. Match with pigeon and truffle over the next 12+ years. Fruit from Gibbston Highway, fermented with 20% whole bunches, 13% alc, aged 11 months in French oak barrels, 30% new oak. 667 dozen produced."

Top class Pinot Noir. A must for all collectors and enthusiasts. Previous vintages of this wine have been listed on Fine wines New Zealand. Also previously voted best NZ red wine at the International Wine Show London. To name just a few of this wine's achievements.

Winemaker description
“Bright garnet hue with aromas of plum, mulled spices, rosemary, peppercorn, and graphite. The intense perfume flows onto the palate with more baking spices, dried florals, cedar, and
dark red fruit. This vintage of Gibbston Pinot Noir is harmonious and inviting with a suppleness that lends great drinkability at a young age. The extremely small harvest from this site makes the wine a real treasure! Drink now until 2030.” August 2022 - Jen Parr
