Description

The relationship with Ashton Hills and the Cemetery Block began in 1998 with a handshake between the late Jim Grigg and Ashton Hills founder Stephen George. The Cemetery Block, now meticulously cared for by his son and daughter-in-law, Jamie and Jenny, is located just down the hill from the Ashton Hills Estate in the Piccadilly Valley and is planted to the MV6 and 114 clones. With a lower altitude and a warmer aspect, it often produces a richer expression of pinot noir.

Nose

Initial punchy herbaceuos notes give way to an elegent perfume of spice, dark fruits, anise and licorice.

Mouth

Sitting behind the initial burst of red fruits are layers of fresh herbs, Indian spice and autumnal notes. Layers of tannin are balanced beautifully with the slippery natural acididity which provides a complex and savoury finish.

Professional Reviews

"This grower’s block sits lower in the Piccadilly Valley, and has a warmer aspect than the estate vineyard, and yes the wine has more richness, more plushness of fruits, the herb and spice elements are more kitchen than forest – think anise-like flavours. Beautifully rounded and sculpted, a familiar house-crafted, gently tannin-coated exit completes the deal."
