About

The Hillcrest Village Pinot Noir packs a lot more punch than your average 'entry level' Yarra Valley Pinot. Grown on the younger Hillcrest estate plantings from 2000 and 2005, this wine has remarkable depth of fruit and serious structure for a wine at this price point. As an entry into the world of Hillcrest, this says it all. A wine stamped with quality, poised to offer the patient drinker plenty more with time in bottle, Gary Walsh gave it 93+ points and the note that it will "I think it’s going to be a surprise package, and will rate higher again with time.". This is exceptional value for any Pinot Noir enthusiast.

What it Tastes Like

"Opens with a doughy/plastic tubs kind of smell, which given a good decant or time to settle, fades into the distance. Aside that a twitch of volatility, dark cherry and chocolate, earthiness, meat and fine grained saturating black tea tannin. It feels dense and firmly structured, with fine acidity and very good length. I think it’s going to be a surprise package, and will rate higher again with time." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
