Gladstone Vineyard Dakins Road Pinot Noir 2018

From our Dakins Road Vineyard, this intensely layered Pinot Noir exudes a harmonious balance between power and elegance. The luscious aromas of red and black bramble berries are lifted by streaks of pretty florals that are complemented by a savoury minerality.

5-Stars | "Finely scented, the debut 2018 vintage was matured for a year in French oak casks (35% new). Bright ruby, it is a savoury, youthful, well-structured red, with cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent complexity, and a long life ahead. Best drinking 2021+" - Michael Cooper

A mix of wild and innoculated ferments, however, all ferments were started wild. 37% of this wine is whole-bunch, and maturation for 14 months in barrel.
