Description

The 2017 Adelaide Hills growing season commenced with one of the wettest winters on record, pushing back flowering, veraison - and ultimately harvest - by about four weeks on recent years. Fortunately, weather during ripening was dry without excessive heat spikes, leading to full flavour and colour development. The fruit for the 2017 Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir was sourced from our own Tregarthen Rd estate and complemented with small parcels selected from a handful of sympathetic Piccadilly Valley sites. The wine was matured predominantly in seasoned French oak for a period of 12 months prior to bottling.

Drink now or cellar for five years for further complexity.

“…From the first waft, this is almost disgusting in its visceral sensuality. This is the sensation most of the most-obsessed Pinot perves dream of, but rarely get to feel. There’s just a cheeky tickle of the spice of old French oak, but mainly this bouquet is silk-smooth, musky, fresh-washed flesh. It is not what mortal humans expect of grapes … To drink, it’s so bare-faced matter-of-fact that you might just as well undress. You don’t want food. You’ll want another bottle. Don’t fall in the glass.”

Made with both estate and non-estate fruit by Stephen George and Paul Smith.
Right in the groove. Powerful pinot noir with some warmth, lots of spice, ample varietal character and lots of charm. Anise, florals, sweet red cherry, rosewater and flings of dry spice. Aforementioned warmth is the only real issue. In all other respects it’s a delight to drink.
