Juicy, fun-loving pinot... Loaded with perfume, fresh in fruitiness to taste, good-light tannin profile, brisk acidity. It’s daring you to drink a lot. It’s great.
About The Wine
James Hamilton is pumping out some seriously likeable wines from his family's Adelaide Hills vineyard, and this Pinot is no exception.
It's bright and lifted on the one hand but with 60% whole bunches providing extra spice and depth.
If you're looking for an easy-to-drink/glug Pinot with a little x-factor, look no further. This is tops.
About Golden Child
Golden Child is the project of father-and-son team, David and James Hamilton. David grows the grapes from his own vineyard in Kuitpo in the southern Adelaide Hills, while son James uses his wealth of winemaking experience to bring the wines to bottle.
Having their own 20+-year-old vineyard gives the Hamiltons enormous flexibility with the wines and allows James to craft some pretty unique offerings. The fruit is all hand-picked, fermented with natural yeasts and crafted together gently and with minimum additions.
The range is wide, colourful and wholly enjoyable - this is a new Hills producer to keep an eye on.
