Gibbston Valley Le Maitre 2011 Pinot Noir

starstarstarstarstar_half

A single vineyard wine from Gibbston Valley’s Home Block, this is a lighter style Pinot Noir for someone who likes a complex fruit-driven Pinot Noir and doesn’t have a budget (it retails for around $75).

A bright ruby red in colour, the Gibbston Valley Le Maitre is a fruit bomb of strawberries, raspberries and cherries but also some white chocolate, thyme and earthen notes for added complexity.

This wine has an amazing silky texture and an incredible length. Match with delicate meals.

Gibbston Valley Le Maitre 2011 Pinot Noir is a vegan wine, made without the use of fining agents.
