Description:

Handcrafted with fruit from our Gibbston and Bendigo vineyards, the 2016 GV Collection Pinot Noir is a regional statement of consistency and premium quality Central Otago-style wine.

The wine speaks of 2016, with a beauty and silky elegance. Delicate yet full red colour. A tender bouquet with pretty florals and red fruit settles over some intriguing spice.

The palate is suffused with beauty, draping itself languidly over thread of finely honed structural components.

5 Star - Raymond Chan

2016 GV Collection Pinot Noir

Even ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is elegant with soft, fragrant aromas of dark-red cherry and berry fruit, unfolding dark-red and violet florals with subtle notes of herbs. This is refined and possesses good aromatic intensity. Medium-full bodied, the palate has vibrantly aromatic dark-red cherry fruit melded with bright floral notes and subtle herbal nuances. The palate has good depth and intensity with a fine, concentrated core. The fruit is supported by fine-grained, flowery tannin extraction with fresh, balanced acidity adding to the vitality and richness. The flavours carry to a long, lingering, aromatic, cherry-fruited finish. This is a vibrant and aromatic Pinot Noir with dark-red cherry and floral flavours on a fine-grained palate. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 6-7+ years.
