Gibbston Valley Gold River Pinot Noir Central Otago 2021


Estimated delivery between May 28 and May 30.

Handpicked, small batch fermented, and barrel aged in French oak,
the Gold River Pinot Noir offers exceptional quality and typicity at a good price.

The grapes are from a mix of vineyards found in Bendigo (57%), Pisa (32%) and Gibbston (11%). Fruit from these three subregions was fermented in small 5 tonne open top fermenters. Typical maceration was 21-24 days before pressing. The
wines went through MLF in barrel, and spent 9 months in French oak.

The Gold River Pinot Noir expresses fragrant red and dark fruit aromas, and a complex balance of fruit and spice on the palate.

This wine will drink well in its youth but will comfortably handle 3-5 years in the cellar.
