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 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.
