About The Wine
Young Will Gilbert is doing a lot of things right in his effort to elevate the status of Pinot Noir from Orange.
This is a tasty example of Pinot done his way.
A little bit of whole bunch action (15%), only a dab of new oak (20%), a good stint in bottle before release. It's all come up trumps.
This delivers very good very. A daily-drinking wine that will scratch that Pinot nicely.
Simon Gilbert has been one of the quiet achievers in Australian wine for almost 40 years.
Having worked for some of the biggest names in Aus wine (Lindemans, Padthaway and Brangayne to mention just a few) he has amassed a very serious skill set which he is now putting to work under his own label which focuses on regionally expressive wines from NSW.
Simon is a sixth generation winemaker who has built a reputation for producing top quality wines under his own label since 2004. Now with son Will on board as co-winemaker, the Gilbert family winery is going from strength to strength.
