Description

The Gibbston Valley 2013 China Terrace Pinot Noir is dark with flashes of purple to the colour. A deep, impressive, brooding nose follows, with rich leather, spice and dark berry compote aromas. Expansive and yet detailed, the engaging palate is very tactile, surging though with impressive concentration. Generous, savoury tannins sweep through on the finish.

The China Terrace vineyard comes from Bendigo some 300-350 metres above sea level. This vineyard’s altitude means the warmth of Bendigo is tempered giving great balance, later ripening and red fruit flavours to its wines. Whilst opulent with its high tone fruit, China Terrace provides very integrated complex savoury tannins.
