2018 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir

2018 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir


($23.80 Wine Club price)

Sourced from old vine Pinot Noir grown high in the Adelaide Hills on the former Seppelt Pertalunga vineyard. The vineyard was planted circa 1980 to a variety of grapes, but it is Pinot Noir that we sought out. The connection with Andrew was too strong to ignore. Handpicked fruit was fermented in small open top fermenters before being aged in a mix of new and used French oak hogsheads. Bottled in late December 2018 to retain the fresh cherry characters that are a signature of this vineyard and its MV6 and Pommard Clones. Highly structured, a wine that will benefit from a good stint in the cellar.

This wine is bright, with lifted florals, red fruits, cherry, medium bodied with a backbone of fine tannins. A wine that is drinking well on release but will benefit from some time in the cellar.
