Immediate greetings from the glass, with an almost overwhelming aromatic power. Very complex, with wafts of plum, rhubarb, cherry, cola and aniseed. There is a real immediacy on the palate, with bright, juicy flavours that include sappy spice, lavender and a compote of red, blue and black fruits.
The 2018 Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir from Ashton Hills is a medium-bodied, layered Pinot. The Cemetery Block provides fleshy texture from the warmer clime, and the finely structured tannins come from the Ashton Hills Vineyard. The wine has a delicious, pulpy texture and ripe firm tannins. Incredible complexity and character for a wine at this price.
Grapes were hand-picked and basket pressed. Small percentage of whole bunches used. Fermented with indigenous yeast only. No new oak.
