Hugely lifted wild strawberry nose that follows through on the full, earthy palate. This immensely drinkable Pinot Noir demands a second bottle as much as a second glass and would sucker up to pink beef amazingly well.
Christine Kernohan has lived in New Zealand 40 years, but her peaceful idyll in Gladstone hasn’t dimmed her feisty Scottish provenance let alone the accent. Established on the old riverbed of the Ruamahanga River at Gladstone, they are proud to be one of New Zealand's most beautiful vineyards. Since its inception, Gladstone Vineyard has been a member of the New Zealand Sustainable Winemaking programme, focusing on best practice environmental practices in winegrape production. Wairarapa, at the foot of NZ’s North Island, is delightfully rolling country with soils and elevations perfect for Pinot Noir. Gladstone have harvested huge praise for their Pinots – and their gifted new winemaker Alexis Moore (previously assistant winemaker at Seresin) is eager to further hone this fine fruit for the future. Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris are also hugely bright and expressive here. Christine has been womanfully managing a loyal core of UK customers herself remotely from home but we’re delighted to have Gladstone aboard with us now.
