Ashton Hills Estate Pinot Noir 2016

As the label suggests, this is made from 100% Ashton Hills vineyard fruit. It comes from four clones: 57% from D5V12, 23% from Martini, 13% from 777 and 7% from MV6. The fruit is mostly destemmed via a small, customised destemmer that keeps as many whole berries as possible. The fruit is then basket pressed, naturally fermented, and the wine is raised without any sulphur additions until bottling. Some whole bunches are included, and the percentage varies according to the style of the vintage. The wine is mostly raised in aged, neutral French hogshead barrels, though unlike the wine above, the Estate sees roughly 20% new oak.

A step up in flesh and depth here on every level, colour, nose, and palate. It's a textured fleshy wine with lots of sweet, strawberry fruit and that resinous, cool forest note that is so typical of these wines. Nice spicy close. Lovely.
