Hawkshead Gibbston First Vines Central Otago Pinot Noir (2019)

Estate-grown at Gibbston, the elegant 2019 vintage (4.5*) was hand-picked from 18 year-old vines and matured for 10 months in French oak barrels (50 per cent new). Ruby hued, it is mouthfilling, savoury and supple, with vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, woven with fresh acidity, silky tannins and a seductively smooth finish. Already drinking well, it should break into full stride mid-2022+.
