2016 Eden Valley Pinot Noir

Eden Valley

Pinot noir has been grown successfully in Eden Valley for many years, normally being used to produce sparkling wine. Wanting to make wines with a point of difference, we thought that the Eden Valley climate and soils would enable us to produce a pinot noir with a more full-bodied fruit- driven style. Our prediction proved to be correct as it has become most popular and in high demand.

Tasting Notes

The 2016 Pinot Noir is made from premium, single vineyard grapes grown in the red gum forest area, of the cool climate Eden Valley.

For a lighter-bodied wine it has a lovely purple colour, with lively aromas of strawberries and cherries, with a delicate hint of spice on the bouquet.

The palate has delightful berry flavours with a hint of plum and a crisp, tight, refreshing finish that lingers beautifully.

Product Name

2016 Eden Valley Pinot Noir

Colour

Red

Wine Making

The grapes were hand harvested, fermented then gently pressed in our traditional basket press before oak barrel maturation.

Cellaring

This Pinot Noir is beautiful to enjoy right now, however, if given careful cellaring, it will continue to evolve over the next 2-3 years as it matures.

Food Suggestion

This is a wine that is very enjoyable on its own, but it also makes a great accompaniment to lighter-style meat and fish dishes.

2016 Hare ‘n’ Roo Sparkling Wine

Eden Valley

For many years our chardonnay and pinot noir grapes were sold to a leading winery as a single vineyard for the production of a very successful sparkling wine. In 2016 we decided that we should produce our own ‘bubbles’ which we called “Hare n Roo”. Why? Hares and kangaroos live in harmony together in our vineyards just as our chardonnay and pinot noir combine together to give a very high quality sparkling wine.

Tasting Notes

This Sparkling wine is made from premium, single vineyard grapes grown in the cool climate of Eden Valley. The vines are hand pruned and the grapes hand-picked.

It has a beautiful bead and a delightful colour, with a very slight pinkish hue. The aromas of apple and strawberry with a hint of yeast autolysis are very appealing.

The palate is crisp, yeasty and very tasty with elegant strawberry and cherry flavours, leading to a refreshing finish.
