Heirloom Vineyards Pinot Noir

Heirloom Vineyards Pinot Noir

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 of course, no indication of condition, being a Pinot Noir, but vibrant translucent ruby red with bright see through tinges. A striking and intriguing colour.

The aroma is suggestive of ripening cherries, and like a perfume made from ripening summer pudding fruits; raspberries, boysenberries, red-currants and even a hint of mint and mossy forest floor but overall this wine redolent with ripening plums and black cherry smells and the merest hint of enticing cedar and spice. An extraordinary range of aromatics like waves crashing on a beach.

The palate is initially intense sweet fruit of cherries and ripe raspberries, plums and then some black cherries.This is balanced by a tangy acidity, like a summer pudding with some fresh cream and spice from the French Oak and an almost chalk-like tannin structure. A real nod to Burgundy.

An extraordinary Pinot Noir from the Adelaide Hills, from Heirloom clones of course, of whole bunches (stems and all) open fermented basket pressed, unfiltered, unfined and hand-bottled from a single site of free draining quartz laden north-facing vines that cannot be poached by describing their location on this note. We think this wine will cellar well but is so delicious now any argument for delayed gratification is almost academic. Heirloom Vineyards Pinot Noir great wine from Adelaide Hills.
