Blank Canvas Anthem Pinot Noir 2018

“Mid smudgy cherry red and already showing some development in the colour with a soft pink rim. Aroma of succulent but tart red cherry and a hint of orange and just very slightly smoky to add further complexity. Lifts beautifully from the glass: scented, inviting. Classic freshness of this cool, late-ripening subregion but it is fully ripe. Intense purity of fruit here, the whole-bunch component in the background and just adding further freshness and a lovely, subtle herbal aspect. Tannins are super-fine, almost chalky, then silky on the day after opening. Great length, and tastes much younger than the colour might have suggested. Vibrant, refined, daringly light and dry and yet with great substance, persistence and tenderness. Confirms my love of the best Gibbston wines”
18.5/20 Julia Harding MW, January 2022

“Before you take a slurp, enjoy the nose of this over a few sniffs, because it keeps changing, evolving from violets to anise, cedar and sweet damson. This is a very relaxed wine style; there’s no sense of trying to be something it’s not. The tannins are resolved, providing a fine powdery veil, while juicy acidity floods the mouth on the medium-long finish. Already accessible and will continue to evolve for at least 4–7 years.” 93 Points Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous
