About The Wine
This is the top Pinot Noir in the Murdoch Hill range.
A single vineyard offering from Uraidla in SA, this was fermented as 50% whole bunches - young gun winemaker Michael Downer drawing more smoky/spicy complexity from the fruit with the higher whole-bunch inclusion on this wine.
With 95 points from James Halliday and 93 points from Mike Bennie, this is a wonderfully youthful example of the very high quality coming out of the Murdoch Hill cellar at the moment.
About Murdoch Hill
Murdoch Hill is a family-owned winery captained by talented young winemaker Michael Downer.
Downer splits the range in two: his clean-cut, consistently high-quality ‘Estate’ wines are excellent value and perpetually reliable, and his quirky, adventurous ‘Artisan’ wines which offer an alt-styling and different shades of the region.
With the combination of high-quality Adelaide Hills fruit grown on the family estate and the undoubted talent in the winery, this is a Hills producer on the up and up!
