Gunn Estate Reserve Pinot Noir 2019

This dark garnet coloured Pinot Noir has aromas of dark cherry, wild forest berries and dark chocolate supported by notes of Shiitake mushrooms, vanilla and nutmeg. The vibrant palate has excellent texture with fine powdery tannins and a seam of acid that assists length.

2019 vintage was one of the best we’ve seen in decades. A combination of the hot summer and lower fruit yields meant that the harvest occurred around two weeks earlier than the long-term average. Fruit was in perfect condition across all Marlborough varieties loaded with intensity. As ever, picking dates were critical, with our Pinot Noir fruit being harvested during the dry, late vintage period. The long, hot summer has created a ripe, rich and vibrant fruit profile, deliciously typical of a Marlborough Pinot Noir.
