    Pinot Noir

Bright cherry fruit on the nose, in the mouth it has a sublime silky texture. Flavours abound, fruit, spice, savoury earthy beetroot hints as it evolves. It is fresh and persistent with a lovely complexity.

Everything is done right here, with much thought and observation, in the old style way, from the biodynamic preparations and close vine plantings through to the gravity fed winery, and the results are exceptional. This Pinot Noir is the pinnacle of those efforts, fruit from the oldest vines and treated to the best oak. One to savour.

Hochkirch Pinots are made in a bold earthy rich burgundian style, quite different to the light soft red fruit styles ofter found in New Zealand & Tasmania.

Tasting Notes for Hochkirch Maximus Pinot Noir 2017 from the Winery

"The most capricious of varieties, Pinot is however capable of breathtaking magnificence as no other red wine when terroir, season and man meet in the right coincidence. Although these are early days Pinot seems to feel at home in our vineyard with the rigours of a cold southwest Victorian climate.

Fruit is handpicked and partially destemmed into small open fermenters with natural wild ferment in its own time and gentle hand plunging. After a long slow ferment, pressed and gravity transferred to small fine grained French oak, natural malolactic ferment occurred with the warmth and new life of spring. Falling bright with gravity our wines are neither fined nor filtered and in some years show an opaque richness as testament to this natural process. Bottled by hand using natural corks, our wine of course contains no animal products or GMOs." John Nagorcka
