Ulithorne produces small quantities of red wines from selected parcels of grapes from its estate vineyard in McLaren Vale, planted in 1950 by Bob Whiting. These rare and high-quality wines are crafted to always consider the fruit first – ensuring that the final wine celebrates all that is unique in the flavours and structure of the fruit taste, as it ripens in the vineyard.
The Altus Pinot Noir presents a light ruby colour, and fresh red fruits such as cherry and raspberry unfold on the nose. The palate is complemented by juicy red fruits and touches of light spices. This wine is medium-bodied, balanced by structured tannins and acidity for a well-rounded finish.
This is wonderfully fruited and gorgeously styled, showing dark plum, spiced cherry, clove, roasted nut and dark mushroom characters on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate that's both powerful and supple. Beautifully textured and persistent to an impressively long silky finish. At its best now to 2028. Rating: 95 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
