Gladstone Wairarapa Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
Still on sale, the 2006 vintage is the best yet. Matured for 10 months in French oak barriques, it is floral and sweet-fruited, with very good depth of cherry, plum and spice flavours. Full-bodied and moderately firm, it shows good intensity and structure, and is drinking well now.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The debut 2001 vintage was grown at Gladstone and matured for nine months in one and two-year-old French oak casks. It's a moderately complex wine, ruby-hued, vibrantly fruity and soft, with ripe, plummy, cherryish flavours, some spicy, savoury characters and gentle tannins. The 2002 is fresh and lively, but not highly complex, with cherry, plum and herb flavours and light tannins in a forward, easy-drinking style.
