Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The beauty of Gibbston threads through this wine. From its delightful fragrance to its wistful lingering thread of tannin, it embodies the site and region. Wild herbs and boyant red fruit aromatics lead into a palate of shimmering, svelte beauty."
5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, January 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"From the Glenlee vineyard in Gibbston. The wine reveals its cool climate origin with aromatic fresh herb flavours adding extra complexity to floral, cherry and spice flavours. Dense, elegant and supple wine with energy and character. Delicately aromatic pinot that gives a nod in the direction of Burgundy. Worth decanting. Ageing: now to 2023. Food: Lamb fillet tartar, spring onion, mint, leek."
5 Stars & 19.0+/20 Raymond Chan, October 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Dark ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is firmly concentrated with a soft, but densely packed core of dark-red cherry fruit entwined with fragrant dark-red and violet florals, complexed by subtle fresh and dark herb notes and nuances of whole bunch stalk elements. This has good depth and intensity, and beautiful perfumes. Medium-full bodied, the palate is sweetly rich with dark-red cherry and berry fruit with plum notes, interwoven with violet florals. Subtle dark herb and whole bunch stalk detail, with hints of spicy oak add interest and complexity. The fruit is underlined by soft, fine-grained tannin extraction that allows the fruit to show some plumpness and opulence. The flavours are mouthfilling and carry gently to a soft, aromatic finish of dark fruits, florals and spices. This is a sweet, rich and plush Pinot Noir with dark berry fruit, subtle herb detail and spicy oak elements on a soft-textured palate with a degree of opulence. Handpicked fruit, clones 115, 777 and 114, from the close-planted ‘Glenlee’ vineyard, Gibbston, indigenous yeast fermented with on average 20% whole clusters to 14% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 26% new French oak."
94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Complex and engaging bouquet with aromas and flavours of fresh raspberry and crunchy red cherry, a touch of fruit spice and packed with fragrances of wood. Baking spices, a whisper of bacon (oak), red apple, a core of fruit then layers of minerality. Fresh, tension giving acidity, fine to moderate tannins the grip of a youthful and poised wine. Lengthy finish. Allow this wine to age please, it will reward."
93/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2016 Vintage)
"From a close-planted vineyard originally developed by Gary Andrus (Archery Summit), the 2016 Glenlee Pinot Noir is a medium-bodied, silky, supple, dare-I-say delicate wine. Tea, floral and spice notes give the bouquet an almost potpourri-like quality, while there's sufficient cherry fruit to support all those nuances and a long, lingering finish."
