The 2017 Piccadilly Valley Pinot from Ashton Hills reflects the cooler nature of the vintage. The result is a medium-bodied, layered Pinot with the Cemetery Block providing fleshy texture from the warmer clime, and the finely structured tannins coming from the Ashton Hills Vineyard. The wine has a delicious, pulpy textured and ripe firm tannins. Incredible complexity and character for a wine at this price.
Grapes were hand-picked and basket pressed, keeping individual clones separate in small open fermenters. A small percentage of whole bunches used. Fermented with indigenous yeast only. No new oak.
