RegionHenty, Western Districts, VIC
This is superb cool-climate fruit from close planted vines and made with the utmost care, but very little interference.
Complex, cool climate Pinot Noir made to the highest standards. Pure bright, cherry/plum fruit with a silky and deep mouthfeel. Outstanding retention of acidity and freshness and a distinctive earthy, sappy complexity which is the terroir. Pure, long and complex – this will age well. The wine’s terrific stony lift on the finish gives it nice definition.
Hochkirch Pinots are made in a bold earthy rich Burgundian style, quite different to the light soft red fruit styles often found in New Zealand & Australia.
Background notes from Hochkirch 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." - John Nagorcka
