Mid crimson in colour with a tawny rim. This Individual vineyard Target Gully is only produced in exceptional vintages, like Pipeclay Terrace. Notes of black plums, cherry earth and florals, mainly violets. Just medium weight but with great intensity on the palate. Good restraint as many Otago Pinots are Pinots for Shiraz lovers. Oak influence has been totally integrated. A very good PN but it is definitely new world. This is one of the most medium bodied Pinots from Central Otago I have had.
