Named after the river (Gibsons) that runs through the vineyard down there in the Brancott district of Marlborough.
Yawn, not another wine named after a river, stream, mountain or tree! But what’s in the bottle is anything but boring. A medium to full bodied style Pinot full of juicy, savoury black fruit and cherry flavours. Normally close to $25 at full price, around $20 or just under on special, this price is nuts!
With the winery looking to move along the final stocks of their Cuisine recommended 2013 vintage they’ve offered us this hell deal – how could we say no? At $13.99 this Pinot offers complexity and flavour you’d never normally get under fifteen bucks.
Not for the first time this label has got the big ups from judges in Cuisine magazine. It scored 4 Stars and a Best Buy award, meaning it offers that little bit of extra bang for your buck (they reviewed it based on a $25 price tag!).
With a few years bottle age under its belt this one’s drinking nicely right now, but will keep going until 2018. Crack it open with duck, lamb, veal or venison if you’re looking to pair it up with a feed.
