GIBBSTON VALLEY GOLD RIVER PINOT NOIR CENTRAL OTAGO 2020
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.
