Gladstone Pinot Noir

Description

Red, purple hue. The nose has fragrant characters of blackberry and dark cherry with floral undertones. Beautifully balanced by savoury oak notes, and sage characters. The palate is refined and tight with real silky texture. Fruits form early but the wine is carried by a lovely savoury tone and whole bunch structure and tannins.

Extra Notes

Gladstone Vineyard is in Wairarapa, one of the country's oldest Pinot Noir producing regions. Since 1986, vineyards have been planted along the terraces of the Ruamahanga River, with a free-draining soil profile of clay over stony silt loams. This provides optimal ripening conditions for the grapes that is unique to the region. With time, maturity has been developed in the vineyards, thus bringing on incredible fruit concentration that lends well to the style of winemaking.

Wine Review

Gladstone Estate Pinot Noir

Beautifully elegant Pinot from Wairarapa in NZ. A lovely perfumed nose with black cherry, floral notes and a little spice. Soft palate with great fruit length and silky tannins. Premium Pinot without a premium price.
