Ashton Hill winemaker Stephen George in one of Australia's most skilful and versatile winemakers. Making powerful reds at Wendouree, he also produces some beautifully elegant Pinot Noir's at Ashton Hills.
This 2020 Ashton Hills Estate Pinot Noir is one of several outstanding examples of Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir currently made at Ashton Hills. This aromatic Adelaide Hills Pinot offers lifted red cherry, plum and fig are matched with florals and baking spices as well as hints of savoury, earthy notes. The palate features red cherry and cranberry notes which are framed with lovely natural acidity and long fine tannins. A beautifully textured wine with plush, persistent length.
"95 Points. This Estate pinot comes from 5 clones, each vinified separately. 30% whole bunches in each wild ferment, matured on lees in old and new French barriques. Aromatics and flavour profile run the full pinot fruit gamut of cherry and red plum. That’s offset with a subtle bitters note on a palate that hums with an energetic acidity and even tannin length. Delicious.”- Tony Love, winecompanion.com.au.
"From one of the standout producers in the Adelaide Hills comes a stellar new-release estate pinot that is drinking beautifully in its youth but will also cellar well over the next few years. Founding winemaker Stephen George has now handed over the reins to talented Liam van Pelt but keeps a beady eye on proceedings and the quality of the pinots remains stellar. This has undergone partial whole-bunch fermentation to add texture, and the newish French oak plays a key support role to some vibrant berry fruit and black cherry characters. You should pair this with roast Chinese duck for maximum enjoyment. "Yum" and "Perfect for summer" were the reactions of a couple of my tasters."- Winsor Dobbin, winsorschoice.blogspot.com.
