Gibbston Valley

Mt. Difficulty

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

Havoc Farm, Gibbston. Probably the best Pinot I have ever had. No, let me restate that. The best Pinot I have ever had. Vibrant, earthy, minerally finesse, intriguing, complex and surprising. What else do you want a wine to be? Really, liked it!!! Paired it with grilled lamb chops and a home made marion berry based sauce. Yum! — 2 months ago

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. — 6 months ago

Seppelt

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. — 8 months 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. — 7 months ago

Kooyong

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.. — a year ago

Home Hill

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
