Murdoch Hill Pinot Noir 2020 - Adelaide Hills
Closure: Screw cap
Bottle size: 750ml
The palate mirrors the style of fresh and vibrant aromas, whilst showing softness with juicy strawberry fruits and supportive sappy fine tannins from careful stalk management. The fruit was handpicked and de-stemmed, allowing for the retention of whole berries, open-fermented in small one-ton vats.
Varying levels of whole bunches were included in the ferments ranging from 25% - 100%, this aided structure and spice to the wine. Minimal maceration during fermentation was adopted to produce an elegant wine style. Matured in French barriques with 15% new oak to achieve complexity and length to the wine.
This is an awesome Pinot Noir which stands testimony to the quality of fruit and Michael Downer’s astute clever winemaking. Just beautiful to drink… CR
The Artisan Series by Murdoch Hill is an exclusive range of handmade wines. These wines are made in small batches from a diverse range of vineyard sites throughout the Adelaide Hills.
Michael crafts the wines from vineyard to bottle using a minimalistic approach, utilising indigenous yeast, whole bunch fermentation and extended skin contact to best express the fruit and unique characters of each distinguished vineyard.
Our family has been farming the fertile soils of the Onkaparinga Valley since 1939 and in this time there have been many cattle grazing, hens laying, potatoes grown, flowers picked and since 1998 we have been passionately caring for our vines, and making great wines.
