Rated 5 STARS by Raymond Chan who says "Dark ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is firmly concentrated with a soft, but densely packed core of dark-red cherry fruit entwined with fragrant dark-red and violet florals, complexed by subtle fresh and dark herb notes and nuances of whole bunch stalk elements. This has good depth and intensity, and beautiful perfumes. Medium-full bodied, the palate is sweetly rich with dark-red cherry and berry fruit with plum notes, interwoven with violet florals. Subtle dark herb and whole bunch stalk detail, with hints of spicy oak add interest and complexity.

The fruit is underlined by soft, fine-grained tannin extraction that allows the fruit to show some plumpness and opulence. The flavours are mouthfilling and carry gently to a soft, aromatic finish of dark fruits, florals and spices. This is a sweet, rich and plush Pinot Noir with dark berry fruit, subtle herb detail and spicy oak elements on a soft-textured palate with a degree of opulence."  Sourced from Gibbston Valley Winery website

    93 POINTS: From a close-planted vineyard originally developed by Gary Andrus (Archery Summit), the 2016 Glenlee Pinot Noir is a medium-bodied, silky, supple, dare-I-say delicate wine. Tea, floral and spice notes give the bouquet an almost potpourri-like quality, while there's sufficient cherry fruit to support all those nuances and a long, lingering finish.

    96 POINTS: From the Glenlee vineyard in Gibbston. The wine reveals its cool climate origin with aromatic fresh herb flavours adding extra complexity to floral, cherry and spice flavours. Dense, elegant and supple wine with energy and character. A delicately aromatic pinot that gives a nod in the direction of Burgundy. Worth decanting.

    96 POINTS. A wonderful expression of the cool Gibbston sub-region with fresh herb flavours adding extra complexity to floral, cherry and spice flavours. Supple wine that’s richly textural with energy and character. Delicate aromatics give a nod in the direction of Burgundy
