Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The Crater Rim Limited Edition Gibbston Valley Pinot Noir was sourced from a single Gibbston Valley vineyard. The fruit was fermented in small open top vats by native yeasts followed by maturation on lees in French oak barriques for 15 months. The wine is sweetly expressed on the nose showing red/black cherry, floral, earthy mushroom, vanilla and mixed spice characters. The palate weight and silky texture, brilliantly framed by polished tannins. The wine offers both sweet fruit richness and savoury complexity, making it engaging and satisfying."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"The wine is sweetly expressed on the nose showing red/black cherry, floral, earthy mushroom, vanilla and mixed spice characters. The palate is equally attractive, displaying lovely palate weight and silky texture, brilliantly framed by polished tannins. The wine offers both sweet fruit richness and savoury complexity, making it engaging and satisfying. At its best: now to 2021."
