Helen’s Hill ‘The Smuggler’ Abel Clone Reserve Pinot Noir 2016

Single Vineyard, Single Clone, Single Focus.

Made entirely from Abel clone and sourced from low lying, easterly facing vines at Helen’s Hill in Coldstream, this Pinot has become an in house favourite at the winery.

The terroir of these vines allows for the slow ripening fruit to display powerful red fruits on the front palate.  This wine isn’t finished there though as ample structure in the form of acid and silky tannin provides great length and intensity all the way to the back palate.  Ready to drink now, but ageing in the bottle with add further complexity.

“96 points, Exceptional + Special Value”   

“Abel clone, Selectiv’-harvested, destemmed and crushed, 10 days on skins, 14 months in French barriques (40% new). Has lift and drive to its red fruits/pomegranate flavours, the mouthfeel slippery, the finish fresh.”
