Heirloom Vineyards Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2019

About This Wine

This Heirloom Vineyards Pinot Noir was produced from our best Adelaide Hills Vineyard whose clones and viticulture embody the very best in cutting edge but old school viticulture and winemaking. Hand tended vines, sorted bunch-by-bunch, naturally open fermented, basket-pressed and stored in well seasoned first-use French oak barriques from bespoke coopers.

The colour is unfiltered and suspenseful, as a Burgundian monk would have made it one thousand years ago. Hueful, bright, and true.

True and bright aromatics follow: lively plums and dawn’s forest berries. Black pepper, black tea, black cherry, blackcurrant, blackberry and violets.

This red wine’s savoury core is the world contracted thus. Around play myriad flavours and textures: umami, meatiness, masculinity, charisma, tiny knife-points of fresh berry compote - and following all a clean acidity. Underneath there are layers of broader red fruits and tannin’s grip; graphite and minerality return at palate’s end and a hint - a hint - of oak’s choca/mocha spice sneaks in.

This red wine is why ducks waddle, swim, bob, fly and confit. Just don’t overdo the salt; careful seasoning lest the wine’s fruit be swamped. Gratin Dauphinois and a watercress salad. Or endive. And those larger, rounder wine glasses - bigger than a tennis ball but not as big as your head. And drink this evolving, revealing and truth-telling wine at luncheon. Take your time. This wine invites time.
