I love Gimblett Gravels wines.
This area sets the benchmark for Bordeaux style reds and Syrah in the country, and possibly cool climate Reds in the world. I wasn't familiar with these wines (Bio-dynamic/organic a definite plus) before tasting, so the expectation was that the exceptional 2009 vintage would be a winner. And so, armed with the notes from some of New Zealand’s esteemed critics, over an extended weekend, I got to work and diligently worked my way through the introductory pack. Let's simplify Bob Campbell's review: All 3 wines are GOOD, they are all approachable and drinking well now, but keep in mind that they are all young and will continue to improve for some time yet. My recommendation would to be order a mixed case and try one bottle every 6 months - if I’m right, sometime mid 2013 you will end up trying to buy any remaining 2009 stock you can source - I'll be visiting the winery soon for mine! (Whilst trying to get a jump on the 2010 vintage)
