The 2008 Gibbston Valley Reserve Pinot Noir was awarded the trophy for Best Pinot Noir at the 2010 Sydney International Wine Competition. Exclusively imported by us!
WinemakerChristopher Keys was delighted with the result. “This is notable for two reasons – firstly, the quality of the judging gives theSydneycompetition great credibility, and secondly because for the first time the Gibbston Valley Reserve Pinot Noir is a single vineyard wine.”
Gibbston Valley Reserve Pinot Noir is the winery’s flagship wine and is only produced in those vintages which produce fruit of exceptional quality. All the fruit for the 2008 Reserve came from the School House vineyard inBendigo.
“This Reserve Pinot Noir is the most elegant of our 2008 reds –not the biggest. It has a beautiful perfume unique to this vineyard” Keys added.
“Great Pinot Noir has a link to a place, a real character that defines the wine. This School House Vineyard is simply exceptional. Wines from here are layered and complex.”
Typically made in small quantities there are just 480 cases of the 2008 Reserve Pinot Noir still available
It has been a consistent winner of gold medals and trophies since it was first produced in 1995, with earlier vintages of this label having won best pinot noir trophies at the NZ Royal Easter Show Wine Awards (twice), the Japan International Wine Challenge and the London International Wine Challenge.
