Pinot Noir

Altitude range

This variety is well-suited to the cool slopes and ancient soils of the Adelaide Hills.

Pinot Noir is known to be a fickle and difficult grape, in both growing and winemaking. However the variety is well-suited to the cool slopes and ancient soils of the Adelaide Hills. The grapes handpicked in the morning and left to cold soak for 2-3 days. After pressing, a majority of the wine is transferred to French oak barrels of various ages to mature for approximately 10 months. Summer fruit flavours extend onto the palate complemented by subtle spice notes from the oak. This mid-weight wine is fresh and bright with a firm structure and long, savoury finish.
