Gibbston Valley Red Shed Bendigo Single Vineyard Central Otago Pinot Blanc (2018)

The 2018 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown and hand-picked at Bendigo, fermented with indigenous yeasts in old French barriques, and lees-aged in oak for 10 months. Bright, light lemon/green, with a creamy bouquet, it is weighty and vibrant, with generous, youthful, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, showing good complexity, balanced acidity, and a finely textured, dry, smooth finish.
