100% Martinborough Pinot Noir, grown on the alluvial gravel terraces for which the district has become famous. The season was exceptionally warm allowing high quality, fully ripe fruit to be harvested early with brilliant ripe cherry/plum flavours.
A full bodied style with great backbone and a long lingering finish. An immediately accessible wine, which will improve over the next 2 years. Enjoy with full flavoured fish dishes, any red meats or vegetarian plates.
Clove, liquorice and red cherry play on the nose before opening to a generous berry-fruit mouthful with floral highlights. Full fruit flavours are balanced with spicy, charred oak characteristics that enhance and lengthen the palate. Drink now or cellar for up to five years.
Scotlands most famous connection with Europe was the Auld Alliance with France. First agreed in 1295/6 it was built on Scotland and France's shared need to curtail English expansion. Not simply a military alliance was based on a long established friendship founded on the Scot's love of French wine.The Gladstone Reserve 2011 'Auld Alliance' is a blend from their finest barrels of wine and can be drunk now or cellared for 5 to 7 years from vintage.
Bright ripe blackberry fruit aromas with layers of savoury herbs and cherries, supple tannins, integrated oak, rich and rewarding.
Pinot Noir was left on the vines well after harvest to gain ripeness and some botrytis to produce this fascinating wine. A short period of skin contact has resulted in the tawny rose colour and provides a subtle back bone of tannin. Aromas of grapefruit marmalade with caramelised fruit lead into a rich honeyed palate with red currant and intriguing flavours of a Tokay or Madeira wine. Richly fruited but with crisp acidity this wine is well suited to drinking with blue cheese or a spiced fruit cake.

A fine and elegant mouth feel with layers of flavour, lovely fruit in the berry and cherry spectrum... Very more-ish indeed!
