Mt Rosa Gibbston Central Otago Pinot Noir (2018)

The 2018 vintage (4*) is a single-vineyard, hand-picked red. Ruby hued, it is fragrant, with generous, ripe flavours, hints of herbs and nuts, savoury notes adding complexity, and supple tannins. Probably at its peak, it's drinking well now. The 2017 vintage (4*) is also ready to roll. Matured for 10 months in French oak barriques (21 per cent new), it is ruby hued, with considerable development showing. Fragrant, with a spicy, herbal bouquet, it is nutty and savoury, with fresh acidity, and very good flavour depth and complexity.
