Ashton Hills, Blanc de Noirs, Piccadilly Valley, 2011

100% Pinot Noir from the famed estate's own grapes, from a very cool vintage perfect for sparkling wine production. Enticingly yeasty nose, showing development. Beautifully ready: soft red fruit, but with some structure, bready and savoury. Could be drunk with rich food as much as an aperitif. Now-2022

In 1982 Stephen George began planting Pinot on a south-facing site at 570m. in the Adelaide Hills - which he perceived to be one of the coolest and wettest in the state. It was then, and remains today, just a 3 hectare plot. The top Austrailian wine critic 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.
