Mike and Judy Press established their Kenton Valley Vineyards in 1998, when they purchased 34ha of land in the Adelaide Hills at an elevation of 500m. Over the next two years they planted mainstream cool climate varieties (merlot, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and pinot noir), intending to sell the grapes to other wine producers. Even an illustrious 42-year career in the wine industry did not prepare Mike for the downturn in grape prices that followed, and that led to the development of the Mike Press wine label. 

The third vintage of our clone 777 Pinot Noir and it is more full bodied than the 2014 but still with all the wonderful nuances of this variety The nose is all Pinot Noir floral and fruit driven with some earthy overtones. The palate is long and elegant, and the high altitude of our vineyard is captured in this wine - Mike Press

The grapes were thinned three times, a very expensive process for an $18 pinot noir, but was repaid by the sheer power and depth of this savoury, complex wine. Spices, plum and dark cherry fruit point to a prosperous future, but at this price you can afford to cellar some, drink some.
