Smith & Sheth Cru Kawarau Pinot Noir (2019)

The youthful 2019 vintage (4.5*) was hand-picked from 26-year-old vines at Gibbston and matured in French oak barriques. Full, bright ruby, it is mouthfilling, with vibrant cherry, plum, spice and herb flavours, showing excellent depth, and supple tannins. A highly cool climate style, it's well worth cellaring to 2023+.
