This is a phenomenal pinot, offering immense freshness, red cherries and berries in abundance and a swathe of spicy, undergrowth complexity... Wow!
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.
Full of character and always highly rated by the critics, this is surely one of the finest Pinots in the Hills.
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!
