Valli Gibbston Vineyard Central Otago Pinot Noir 2019 $69

Hand-harvested on five different days during April 2019, the Gibbston fruit imparts an incredibly floral, lifted character into its wines and if you’re a fan of cherry, raspberry, tamarillo and rhubarb razziness, then this is for you. Incredibly stylish and showing superb tension and poise on the palate, it’ll definitely win friends and influence people. Astride the bright fruit component is a layer of savoury, mushroomy magic that adds complexity to the long, persistent finish.
