Quite simply one of the finest examples of Australian Pinot Noir we have come across. The dry grown grapes lay within the Piccadilly Valley region of the Adelaide Hills below the top of Mount Lofty. Resulting in the perfect cool climate environment for Pinot Noir to thrive. Add to this the mastery of Adelaide Hills pioneering head winemaker Stephen George and we are left with what legendary Australian wine writer James Halliday refers to as “the one Grand Cru of the state”.
