Gladstone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009
Wairarapa, North Island, New Zealand $34.00 (141903) 14.7% alcohol
With international gold medals and trophy in hand, this hand-harvested, small-batch-fermented beauty oozes charm and touches of elegance. Dark toast, exotic spice and rhubarb/strawberry compote on the nose, it bathes the palate with rich, spice-laden flavour—tangy cranberry, ripe cherry and vibrant black currant wreathed in savoury herbs and fine-grained tannin. It’s well balanced and nicely structured with a memorable, lingering finish. (Vic Harradine)
