Coal Pit

  • Drink: 2011 - 2015
  • Grape Variety: Pinot Noir

See Bob Campbell MW' rating, tasting notes and drinking window for Coal Pit 2009.

The Gibbston Valley sub-region can struggle to get Pinot fully ripe in a cool vintage, but in a year like 2009 the results can be spectacular. Rich and powerful with intense dark cherry, plum, chocolate and subtle spice flavours.
