Gum Emperor Pinot Noir, Marlborough

Gum Emperor Pinot Noir, Marlborough

Ref: A128811

The Gum Emperor Pinot Noir inherits its name from the beautiful Gum Emperor moth - a local at Jackson Estate.
Making its home in the precious gum tree that defines their homestead vineyard and graces the label of all Jackson Estate wines, the Gum Emperor moth's striking wing pattern symbolizes the artistry and elegance of their Pinot Noir.
Gum Emperor has allowed them to acknowledge the special quality of the 2005 harvest, and will remain a benchmark, only crafted to reflect the very best seasons.

This wine shows all the hallmarks of great Pinot Noir. A lovely lifted Pinot Noir fruit perfume, including wild black cherry and violets, leads to a silken texture with layers of rich focussed forest fruits. Ripe, sensual tannins follow in a wine of exquisite elegance, power and complexity.

Jackson Estate are committed to the avoidance of cork taint in their products which are, consequently, bottled with Stelvin enclosures (screw-caps). CPW heartily approve!

Founded in the late eighties by John and Jo Stichbury, Jackson Estate is one of the few Marlborough winemakers to remain family-owned. The land was originally settled by Adam Jackson, John's great-grandfather, who purchased some 2000 acres of land that comprised most of Jackson's Road, now the sites for neighbouring vineyards such as Cloudy Bay, Allan Scott, and Stoneleigh.

The wines were well-received right from the beginning with quality being the focus, particularly with respect to the land and the vines. Jackson Estate became well-established in the UK and to this day remains a favourite among the influential UK wine media, with its flagship wine - Sauvignon Blanc.

Jackson Estate produces Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, and occasionally a botrytis wine when vineyard conditions allow.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Azalais 2012
Vacqueyras Cuve Azalais 2012
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.


Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Deep coloured with a bouquet of ripe cherry fruit, this is a very approachable wine with the emphasis on ripeness and "crunchy" fruit with excellent balance.
