The 2018 Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of fruit from neighbouring vineyards and estate parcels. Stephen George has taken great interest in applying his winemaking approach to parcels from elsewhere within the Piccadilly Valley and seeing how the wines compare with those from the Ashton Hills Vineyard. The resulting blend benefits from varied fruit character and vineyard expression, while maintaining the fine tannin structure that is typical of the Ashton Hills style.

Professional Reviews

“Vibrant, light red/purple colour; very fragrant, lifted, lively, fresh and bright.
Lovely whole-bunch influenced bouquet. Light-bodied but intense, fresh and frisky,
red berries and strawberry the dominant fruit character, with a trace of mint.
(Mostly off the estate vineyard. One-third whole-bunch, the rest whole berries. No
new oak.)

‘A very fragrant, perfumed array of roses and bright red cherries ascend from the
wine immediately with a refreshing, strawberry kick. The palate is pure and silky,
fruit-focused style with smooth, ribbon-like tannins and a fresh, strawberry and
raspberry kick at the finish. Drink in the next five years. Screw cap.”

“For the lover of pinot noir, it ticks a lot of boxes… it is a detailed, beautifully
fragrant and perfumed wine with fruit notes of red cherry, raspberry and
macerated strawberries. There is a dusting of Asian spice, rose petals, porcini
mushrooms, amaro herbs and some gamey notes to keep the fussiest of
pinotphiles happy. The wine’s bright energetic line, fine curtain of tannin and
mouthfeel that evokes a sense of space and delicacy brings the whole package
together. The 2018 release is a wine that is superb drinking straight off the shelf
but will continue to improve over the next five years or so.”
