Cold climate Pinot. Low sulphur, this one is about red berries and forrest floor – yum
Now that there is no single-vineyard wine being released from Eden Road, the flagship Pinot Noir has become a blend with the very best parcels of fruit ending up in this bottling. For this release, Celine Rousseau made a selection of her best puncheons of Courabyra and Maragle Pinot Noir, with 5% Pinot Meunier also making it to the final blend. The vines of both these sites are rooted in decomposed basalt, rich volcanic soils. The wine was fermented with 20% whole bunches in open fermenters, then lightly pressed to French puncheons (30% new) for 10 months maturation. The result is a fleshy and open, forest floor and mulberry-noted Pinot that’s ready for business!

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”.
This is the 3rd release of the prize winning Brockenchack 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
Sensational Chateauneuf-du-pape from the fantastic 2016 vintage. Subtle and elegant with soft tannin and a sweet peppery finish. ????
