Gibbston Valley GV Collection Pinot Noir 2018 750ml
Our 2018 GV Collection Pinot Noir, is a five vineyard blend: three Bendigo (50%), one Pisa (46%), and one Gibbston (4%). Bendigo provided structure and weight, Pisa: mid-palate fleshiness, Gibbston: fragrance.
Fruit from the various vines is vinified separately, utilising a range of whole cluster percentages (0-100%; 18% overall). We favoured a very gentle extraction regime limited to 1 punch down per day during fermentation. The wines were pressed individually, and spent 10 months in French oak, 23% new.
A complex wine with definite ageing potential. Fresh in nature with a spicy and sappy drive, red fruits, elegant form and a long mineral finish
