Ranked #9 of 15 2014 Pinot Noir from Gibbston
Delicately scented pinot noir with dark berry, cherry, herbal and spicy oak flavours. There's also a suggestion of liquorice and wood smoke. A rich and quite weighty wine, with a strong oak influence.
Drink: 2017 to 2021
This is delicious and flattering with awesome complexity and harmony. Fragrant aromas of dark berry, black olive, cedar, truffle and floral lead to a powerfully expressed palate that remains elegant and poised. It is multi-layered and striking with sweet berry flavours combined with deep savoury nuances, finishing extremely long, silky and flowing. At its best: now to 2022. www.nevisbluff.co.nz.
