Gladstone Vineyard Blair Patrick Single Vineyard Wairarapa Pinot Noir (2018)

The debut 2018 vintage (5*) was matured for a year in French oak casks (35 per cent new). Deep ruby, it is highly fragrant and very refined, in a savoury, youthful, tight-knit style with impressive complexity, fresh acidity and a long, structured finish. Best drinking 2022+.
