Gibbston Valley China Terrace Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

$66.00 $59.40

Deep red coloured. Serene and calm, the wine is enriched in a lovely earthiness. Garlanded with pretty red fruit aromatics, it opens into a sturdy wine, with typical China Terrace tannins punctuating the palate. Complex and brooding, with many years ahead of it. Best after some time in bottle. Great in four years, and able to be cellared over ten years.

Categories: ,


Two clones, 667 and 777 are used in a number of small scale ferments, each with a different proportion of whole cluster. Maceration time varies according to the whole cluster proportion; typically this ranges from 14 days (100% whole cluster) to up to 28 days (0-12% whole cluster). After pressing, the wine spends 11 months in barrel (30% new). The wine is assembled, then bottled without fining, filtration or cold stabilisation. The finished wine has 35% whole cluster.
