Grown at Gibbston and matured for a year in French oak casks (30 per cent new). A very refined and graceful red, it is ruby hued, with an enticingly scented bouquet. Mouthfilling and supple, with ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, fresh acidity and finely integrated oak, it's a very youthful, 'feminine' style of Pinot Noir, well worth cellaring to 2020+.
Robert M. Parker Jr.
An outstanding wine of exceptional complexity and character. In short, these are terrific wines.
