Gibbston Valley


Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

Very good p/q. Reminds me of Giant Steps Applejack/Sexton. Clean red fruit, lavender, with a deeper spice note. There is Gibbston/Otago deep spice, then you get pure red strawberry. No discernible tannin, and acid is subdued, but at this pricepoint this is a buy. — 4 months ago

Gibbston Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

First time I tried this wine some years ago I thought it was a Pinot for Shiraz lovers. It remains a full bodied Pinot with black cherry and black plum with fluid soft tannins. Easy to like and very much a new world Pinot. Good with Duck Pancakes at a good Asian Restaurant on the Gold Coast. — 10 months ago

Subtle flavors. No stainless taste. Maybe some slight oak? — 4 months ago


Drumborg Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Very spicy savoury character. Smells like a Gibbston Valley monster. Doesn’t quite have the purity and weight of otago’s best, but still attractive sweet savoury spice with umami, and cedar on entry. Good bite of acid in mid palate gives some length and interest. — 6 months ago

Estate Tasmania Pinot Noir 2016

Dark and luminous. On the nose, this is a dead ringer for a big Gibbston Valley pinot. Red and black fruit, cherry, but the spice is the overriding trait. A very spicy cherry character with lovely silky mouthfeel. Broad but a little less structured and a bit shorter than a Valli or Gibbston Valley, but at $52, much better value. — 2 years ago

Home Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Classic Central Otago dark brooding character, but with more elegance than Gibbston Valley or Valli. The nose is all blue and black fruit, with a vein of cedar spice, Med-full bodied, complex, with a silky mouthfeel. Serious weight, but not heavy. A cross between the dark weight of Otago and a good Gevrey. Strong buy. — 4 months ago


Single Vineyard Selection Ferrous Pinot Noir 2015

All beef, mushroom, alspice, and balsamic strawberry. Very Morniingron, but the power and strength could easily be confused with. A Gibbston Valley.. — 9 months ago
