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 harvest saw average yields, with the vines hand-thinned to maximise flavour and concentration. Three clones from our estate made the cut for this wine with Martini heading the list at 57%, D5V12 at 33% and 10% from MV6, This Estate Pinot Nair was matured in a combination of new and seasoned French oak for 12 months. Drink now or cellar for around 5 years for further complexity.

“My featured 2017 Estate Pinot Noir comes into the UK in the late summer and it is amazing. With foresty notes on the nose dotted with moss, undergrowth, wild berries and sloes, this is a magnificent pinot and it is so detailed and so complex that it reminds me of a top flight red Corton. This is the antidote to rich, dark, fully ripe New World Pinot. It is the model of calm and composure and Burgundy fans will adore the restraint here.”

“A multi-clone mix that spent 18 months in new and used French oak. It has excellent colour and depth of fruit, predominantly red cherry and wild strawberry, accompanied by fine tannins and oak that needs to settle down – which it will do as the spices build. To 2030.”
