A lesson in loveliness
Gibbston Valley 2014 School House Pinot Noir, Central Otago $65
From School House vineyard in Bendigo with typically deep, ruby colour and dense, ripe dark-fleshed plum, black cherry, blackberry, spice, anise and nutty oak flavours. It has more flesh and richness that I normally expect from Bendigo – a very impressive texture. Very classy wine with excellent cellaring potential. (Screwcap) Score: 97 ★★★★★ – view on bobcampbell.nz
Food match: Char-grilled Angus pure eye fillet, bulgogi beef short rib, broccoli flavours, horseradish crisp, charcoal mayo
