Ashton Hills Pinot Noir Adelaide Hills 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Ashton Hills Vineyard winemaker Stephen George has long been regarded as an early pioneer of the now well-established viticultural site, the Adelaide Hills. Stephen established his 3ha dry-grown Ashton Hills Vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley in the early 1980s and began producing its first wines in 1987. The style reflects the region’s strong similarity to Burgundy and production levels have stayed true to the boutique nature of the winery’s beginnings.

Colour: light ruby red. Nose: sour cherry, stewed rhubarb, with an earthy richness. Palate: sour cherry and stewed rhubarb to the front, with firm, dark, spicy tannins. Sharp, lively acid. Long on the palate.

Colour: light cherry red. Nose: sour cherry, spicy, forest floor, gamy, hints of both sweetness and sourness, very fragrant and delicate. Palate: sour cherry, spice, intense in flavour but medium bodied. Moderate tannins, and good juicy acidity. Long on the palate.

OK it does look like a Pinot Noir with some nice berry characters but... ridiculously overpriced for what it offers! There are many other better Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir's for more reasonable prices e.g. Riposte by Tim Knappstein or even Pike and Joyce.
