About

No variety tells the story of its terroir quite like Pinot Noir. And the Hillcrest Premium Pinot Noir has one great story to tell. This is one of the original sites planted during the 1970s in the Yarra Valley. Dry grown on a sublime site in the cool Southern reaches of the region, these old vines produce one of the country's most intensely powerful Pinot Noirs. The style of winemaking behind this wine was established by Phillip Jones (of Bass Phillip fame). The 2015 release is like a great classic car: muscular, graceful and head-turning. This small batch, premium Pinot Noir is one of the gems of the Yarra Valley and is not to be missed.

What it Tastes Like

"What a powerhouse! It’s the old Hillcrest velvet fog yet again, with palate-saturating fine-grained tannin buried in ripe dark cherry and raspberry, earthiness, baking spices and spearmint/foresty flavours. Acidity is tangerine-laced and almost spicy, and the finish is layered and superbly long. Intensity. Personality. Pleasure. Absolutely wonderful." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
