Gibbston Valley Glenlee Central Otago Pinot Noir (2019)

A single-vineyard red, grown at Gibbston, the refined 2019 vintage (5*) was hand-harvested, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques (20 per cent new). Bright ruby, it is a very graceful wine, mouthfilling and supple, with vibrant, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent complexity and depth, fresh acidity and obvious potential; best drinking 2023+.
