Available to Wine Club Members Only
The Gibbston Valley has the longest growing season in Central Otago. The later harvested grapes develop the distinctive Gibbston intensity of floral, perfumed notes and sweet spice.
These older vines deliver a complex wine. It displays elegant aromatics of rich bramble, blueberry, wild herb and rosemary. This is followed by a mineral driven palate of crushed rock, with layers of fine sweet rich red fruit spice and density. Richly concentrated, it is a seamlessly divine premium wine with great tension, depth and persistence. It will cellar exceptionally well.
The wine is fermented naturally. It is aged for 11 months in French oak Barrels (30% new).
