Description

The Estate Pinot Noir is sourced purely from our five preferred clones on the estate. The fruit is de-stemmed via a small, customised, gentle de-stemmer that keeps as many whole berries as possible. Some whole bunches are included, the percentage varying according to the style of the vintage. After fermentation, the fruit is basket pressed direct to a combination of old and new French oak barriques. The wine is made without any additions until bottling.

Nose

Lifted red cherry, plum and quince are matched with some whole bunch spice and hints of savoury, earthy notes.

Mouth

The palate features crunchy red cherry and cranberry notes which are framed with lovely natural acidity and long fine tannins. A beautifully textured wine with plush, persistent length and a long savoury finish.

Professional Reviews

"From one of the standout producers in the Adelaide Hills comes a stellar new-release estate pinot that is drinking beautifully in its youth but will also cellar well over the next few years. Founding winemaker Stephen George has now handed over the reins to talented Liam van Pelt but keeps a beady eye on proceedings and the quality of the pinots remains stellar. This has undergone partial whole-bunch fermentation to add texture, and the newish French oak plays a key support role to some vibrant berry fruit and black cherry characters. You should pair this with roast Chinese duck for maximum enjoyment. "Yum" and "Perfect for summer" were the reactions of a couple of my tasters."

“This Estate pinot comes from 5 clones, each vinified separately. 30% whole bunches in each wild ferment, matured on lees in old and new French barriques. Aromatics and flavour profile run the full pinot fruit gamut of cherry and red plum. That’s offset with a subtle bitters note on a palate that hums with an energetic acidity and even tannin length. Delicious.”
