Long Gully Pinot Noir 2009
This is the fourth Long Gully Single Vineyard Pinot Noir. Long Gully has always displayed classic red to black forest berry characters and for this cooler vintage blackcurrent and boysenberry really shine through. These same berries dominate the entry onto the palate, and flow in a rich and sensuous vein of fruit through the mid-palate. The wine finishes strongly with masculine fine grained tannin flowing into red berry fruit.
Mt Difficulty Long Gully Pinot Noir will improve for 10 -15 years given optimal cellaring conditions.
