Gladstone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014 Wairarapa
Fruity mineral attack with suggestions of cherry and plum then a silty mineral undertone, quite a closed bouquet overall. On the palate - fruity, fresh, dry and spicy with a layer of brown spice then oak with a light smoky quality, flavours of red fruits return; medium+ acidity and firm youthful tannins. Lots to like, needs time to settle and integrate more. Best from mid 2017 through 2020.
