About The Wine

The Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir is blended for approachability.

This is a blend of Pinot Noir fruit from three vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. It offers the drinker a snapshot of the Adelaide Hills vintage and drinks beautifully from day one. This release shows the classic house style of Ashton Hills, firm, structural and savoury though still ready to drink.

The Piccadilly Valley is the coolest sub-region in the Adelaide Hills, ideal for producing a more delicate style of Pinot Noir. In the hands of the region's finest Pinot producer, fruit from this iconic region sings.

From The Producer

Stephen George has taken great interest in applying his winemaking approach to parcels from elsewhere within the Piccadilly Valley and seeing how the wines compare with those from the Ashton Hills Vineyard.

The resulting blend benefits from varied fruit character and vineyard expression, while maintaining the fine tannin structure that is typical of the Ashton Hills style.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Primarily estate-grown, complemented by small parcels from a few Piccadilly Valley growers, matured for 12 months in used French oak. Shows the benefit of the cool, dry vintage with its array of forest fruits and finely crafted tannins, oak largely a bystander. It's not a powerful pinot, but it's very precise, and the balance is impeccable." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Right in the groove. Powerful pinot noir with some warmth, lots of spice, ample varietal character and lots of charm. Anise, florals, sweet red cherry, rosewater and flings of dry spice. Aforementioned warmth is the only real issue. In all other respects it’s a delight to drink." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
