Gibbston valley

Gibbston Valley 'Gold River' Pnot Noir 2013 Central Otago 13%
Ripe and sweet dark cherry & plum bouquet - very appealing and persistent; mild yet obvious oak signature and that 'Otago' undergrowth/thyme note so liked by many - including me; medium complexity.
On the palate - vibrant, fresh and tasty dark berry fruit flavors, a little pepper enhanced by some toasty oak features; medium tannins and medium+ acidity; balanced, fresh, lively and charming; well made.
