Gibbston Valley 'GV Collection' Pinot Noir 2016, central Otago
Youthful, steely, plum, cherry, red apple skin, soft dried herb layer, moderate oak, complexity builds as the wine opens up in glass. On the palate - dry, firm and youthful with plenty of acidity and crunchy red fruit flavours supported with a judicious measure of oak. Balanced and well made, but not yet ready to drink. Best from 2019 through 2026.
