About The Wine

Jennifer and John Nagorcka planted the first vines for Hochkirch back in 1990. Now almost two decades on, theirs is one of the finest examples of the benefits of biodynamic viticulture in Victoria.

This Pinot Noir is the secondary fruit selection from their high-density plantings. For what might be called an 'entry-level' wine into the Hochkirch range, the quality of wine from 2015 is remarkable. Quite intensity and deep earthy character set this wine apart from many other Victorian Pinot Noirs. Oak plays only a very minor role in the show.

Mike Bennie awarded it a glowing 94 points from 2015. It's the perfect place to start if you want to get familiar with this exemplary West Victorian producer.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Savoury perfume showing cranberry and pomegranate fruit characters, whiffs of amaro, fennel, red cherry, brambles. Palate is generous but also tight, shows lots of bark, amaro, earthiness with cherry (dried and fresh) almost behind the scenes. It’s seriously good, delicious, wonderful as an expression." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
