The combination of the region's highest and oldest Pinot Noir vines and a very cool season - we picked three weeks later than 2020 - has resulted in pitch perfect phenolic and tannin ripeness, with plenty of Scary Gully spice on the nose.

The Wine Front

The long standing, self-farmed vineyard of Gareth Belton and family. Great name for a vineyard.

Stellar wine. Pumice stone texture and finesse all round. Red berries, sour cherry, clove-spiked orange, all this and succulence, ultra-freshness and lift. Has this faint amaro and volcanic rock thing going on, hard to explain, but wonderful. Deliciousness in spades. Purity too. Silky. Supreme length. Refreshing. It’s a serious pinot noir with gluggability writ large.

Producers notes

A love of wine, food and growing things eventually led us away from a vastly different background involving scuba gear. Our winery is situated in the Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills where we try to intervene as little as possible in the growing and making of our wines. We farm a number of small parcels in Basket Range, Forest Range, Norton Summit, Summertown and Ashton. We don’t like to define our styles or wine making techniques, we just make wine in the way we feel is right for the grapes and season and most importantly, with maximum drinkability and enjoyment in mind. We hope you enjoy.
