Hurley Lodestone Pinot Noir 2012
All of these wines are mid-garnet jewel in colour, with Lodestone being the deepest. This is a luscious wine, smelling intensely of blueberries, dark plums, earth and cake spice. The palate is full and smooth with many layers of complexity enveloped in a rich, creamy texture. Ripe and generous but very well balanced, this is a classic Lodestone from an excellent vintage. As with the others, the oak here is classy and judicious. Alc/vol 14.6%. To 2022 and beyond. 300 cases made.
North facing. It is 3.5 acres and puts its whole face to the warmest sun. The vines are of the Burgundian clones 114, 115 and 777, as well as MV6. Lodestone is magnetite, an iron mineral abundant in our vineyards, and also “a thing that is a focus of attention or attraction” (OED). This name keeps us focused on the soil.
