Coal Pit - "The Harry" Pinot Noir 2018 (Next Generation Series)Regular price $105.00 Save $-105.00
The 2018 vintage marked the arrival of Rosie & Mark Dunphy’s first grandchild, Harry.
A fitting name for the premiere release of the ‘Next Generation Series’; a barrel selection from our top performing Pinot Noir clones, and a culmination of over a decade’s worth of dedication in both the vineyard and winery.
The growing season brought it all. Spring was brilliant, with the earliest flowering in Gibbston’s history under continuous dry and warm conditions, resulting in a fantastic fruit set. A perfect Summer, followed by heavy rain in February and March, allowed the berries to expand and fill out to beautiful plush bunches.
Picking began 21 days early and we once again harvested clean fruit without rain, frost or disease pressure.
This special Pinot Noir is a blend from our seven finest barrels, and shows exceptional vitality, mouthfeel and weight. Layers of dark cherry and savoury herbs are delicately integrated with fine tannin, yielding a particularly graceful wine. A true reflection of Gibbston elegance with complexity brooding for many years to come.
