Central Otago "Glenlee" Pinot Noir 2014, Gibbston Valley

Produced from vines in the Gibbston Valley near the old gold mining centre of Arrowtown this 2014 pinot has initial aromas of pine nut, cedar and red plums. There is a touch of strawberry and a hint of cooked orange. Lots of pretty berry fruit on the palate this is a more tangy wi evthan for example the less expensive Bannockburn benchmark from this winery. Bright raspberry and blood orange flavours  leave a long impression with a fresh finish and an elegant style. Medium to low tannins this is very different from the Schoolhouse 2014 produced from Bendigo grapes. The vines were only planted in 2003. Cellar door NZ$68.
