"Gibson's Run" Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

4 Stars/Best Buy - Cuisine Magazine, April 2015
Winemakers Notes
For our 2013 SV Marlborough Pinot Noir we have sourced fruit from two vineyards in the Brancott Valley. The two blocks are side by side and share the same terroir. The two blocks are planted to multiple clones and these add real complexity to the wine. Each parcel spends a year in oak. Whilst in oak, it is undisturbed, apart from two weekly topping. This hands-off approach allows the fruit to shine through. The wine receives a single filtration and is then bottled.

Alc 14%
Acid 5.8 g/L
Res sugar 2.4 g/L
pH 3.63

Tasting Notes
Colour: Deeply coloured for a Pinot Noir, this wine has a deep red/purple core and a red rim.
Bouquet: Black cherries, Black Doris plums, hints of tamarillo and a lovely background of subtle oak.
Palate: Full bodied for Pinot, with firm, yet fine grained tannins and masses of sweet fruit in the mid palate.

Already approachable, but we expect this wine to cellar for a number of years.

Independent reviewer’s comments 
"This bright, juicy rendition was made from fruit sourced from a pair of Brancott Valley vineyards. Sweet fruit flavours are tempered by herbal overtones. It's a lighter style, with finely etched tannins and good freshness. Try it with fresh herb pasta." Cuisine Magazine, April 2015
