Ashton Hills, Pinot Noir, Piccadilly Valley, 2016

Based on fruit from the home vineyard, with grapes from two other nearby farms; no new barrels. Friendly Pinot aromas, just lightly herbaceous and attractively savoury. Lovely texture. Red fruit, very slightly heated, mildly gamey; and appealingly long. Drinking perfectly from now, this tastes like a decent Côte de Beaune at five years of maturity. One of Matthew Jukes' 100 best Australian Wines 2018/19. Now-2022

Just a 3 hectare plot, with plantings of five clones of Pinot and seven or eight rows of Riesling. James Halliday described the Ashton Hills vineyard and Stephen's efforts thus: "the most distinguished site in South Australia for Pinot Noir; Stephen's unremitting attention to detail has made Ashton Hills the one Grand Cru of the state."

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
