Ashton Hills, Estate Pinot Noir, Adelaide Hills, 2016

 From four clones; 30% whole bunch; some new oak on this wine; and bottled without filtration. So generously open and fat, silky and supple with splendid flesh and intriguing spice hints (star anise?). Near perfect structure, complexity and longevity. Now-2024 Limited stock

"It has amazing purity of rich fruit, showing aromas and flavours of ripe cherry and strawberry, exotic spices and autumn leaves. It's savoury and silky with firm structure and bright acidity. Superb! Drinking window 2018 - 2021. 94/100", Tina Gellie, Decanter online, tasted 23rd January 2018

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."

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
