The 2019 vintage marked the arrival of another grandson for Rosie and Mark Dunphy – Leo, brother to Harry, and the second wine to be bottled under our Reserve ‘Next Generation Series.’ A barrel selection from our top performing Pinot Noir clones, and the first vintage to be produced under organic conversion in the Coal Pit vineyard and winery.

This special Pinot Noir is a blend from our seven finest barrels, and is an immensely powerful wine with exceptional vitality. The Leo is characterised by
an intense crème de cassis and wild bramble berry character both on the nose and palate. While aromas of crushed blackcurrant and baking spices abound, complex layers of wild thyme and savoury undertones provide an intense density of flavour. Silky tannin structure coupled with a lively energy yields an iconic Pinot Noir worthy of investment. A true reflection of Gibbston elegance with complexity brooding for many years to come.

Fabulous bouquet with layers of red fruit scents melted bewteen a savoury mineral and new wood complexity. The bouquet is also classic Coal Pit and with its’ soft wild thyme layer - classic Otago as well. On the palate - fantastic. A mix of red berries and rapsberry, savoury spices and plum, a core of mineral and baking spices of oak, there’s a definitive sweet spot mid palate and a long detailed finish. An abundance of fine polished tannins, medium+ acidity and with myriad spice layers this wine delivers a delicious mouthfeel and harmony. Great drinking from today and through 2032+. 97n points - Outstanding - Cameron Douglas, MS
