From the standout 2016 vintage is the first release of Brockenchack’s Eden Valley Pinot Noir. Grown at the highest point of the vineyard (480M), this is an elegant Pinot from the cooler climate of the Eden Valley
Pinot Noir is not a common varietal grown in Eden Valley, but as it is a favourite varietal of ours, and our winemaker’s, we wanted to deliver an elegant Pinot from our cool climate Eden Valley vineyard. Grown at the highest point on our vineyard, at 480m above sea level, we were able to ripen our Pinot Noir grapes perfectly.
Colour – scarlet and crimson with bright pink hues.
Nose – delicate fresh aromas of cranberry, raspberry and cherry.
Palate – A light to mid weight Pinot with good fruit ripeness. Red fruits underlined by bramble and clove notes, vanilla and soft white pepper.
Linear restraint, fine tannin grip, and superb length

1 x 2016 Estate Pinot Noir
1 x 2016 Reserve Pinot Noir
“Ashton Hills is the most distinguished site in South Australia for Pinot Noir; Stephen George’s unremitting attention to detail has made Ashton Hills the one Grand Cru of the state.” – James Halliday
Another fantastic wine from Monterra and former winemaker of Grange Mike Farmilo. Lots going on here with cherries, red apples, redcurrant, red liquorice, white pepper and herbs all in tow. It is unashamedly medium bodied and offers great intensity of fruit, savoury notes and excellent structure.
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”.
