Ashton Hills Estate Pinot Noir 2013
The fragrant, gently spiced bouquet and palate are akin to a miniature painting, exquisite in its detail; complete harmony is the key to this wine, its length exceptional, extended by the forest berry/forest floor overlay on the finish.

An effortless pinot noir, capturing the fruit intensity and complexity of a warm and very dry season, while presenting it with grace and poise, framed in a silky and refined structure. It’s spicy and intense on the bouquet, with mixed spice, berry compote, sarsaparilla, anise and beetroot. The palate has excellent poise of rose hip and violet perfume over a core of dark berry fruit and savoury beetroot persistence, laced seamlessly together with finely structured tannins of silky texture and great persistence.

Year in, year out, Ashton Hills Vineyard produces the pinot noir goods. It is a remarkable producer … This pinot noir is beautifully fragrant and powerful, spice-shot and lengthy. Fruit is cherry-plummed, coffeed, rich but tangy. When you stop and concentrate on the finish, or the aftertaste, you see how the flavours infuse every aspect; alcohol, tannin and acid. Nothing sits aloof; everything is roped to the flavour. Structurally it’s all class but mostly it is, simply, undeniably delicious. Rating: 94 Points; Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
