Gillman Vineyard 2016

$100.00 inc. GST

5 stars – Michael Cooper

“Fleshy, savoury and full-coloured, the 2016 is a classy young red, likely to be long-lived, with deep blackcurrant/spice flavours, leathery notes adding complexity, good tannin support, and a very harmonious finish.” – Michael Cooper

Tasting Notes: Dark garnet in colour. Intense nose of red plums, wet leaves, garrigue, cedar and smoke – alongside a touch of violet. The palate is mellow yet persistent, with red fruits on the front before progressing to a savoury, earthy and mushroom-inflected mid-palate. Pleasantly long on the finish, with fine-grained, powdery tannins. Only 961 bottles were produced from the 2016 vintage.
