Ingram Road Pinot Noir 2018

The best Pinot Noir around $20?  We think so!

Ingram Road is an exciting range of wines from Helen’s Hill Estate, a boutique winery in the renowned Yarra Valley.

At Helen’s Hill Estate, Pinot Noir is by far their biggest grown variety.  They have been growing it for many years, supplying well known Pinot Noir labels such as Coldstream Hills and producing their own Helen’s Hill label.

Following traditional winemaking processes, utilizing full French oak maturation, the Ingram Pinot Noir displays rich varietal characters on the nose, sweet cherry and strawberry flavours on the front and mid palate with a savoury, earthy (spicy) finish on the back palate.  Thanks to the French oak, the wine has a wonderful full textural mouth weight and long lasting finish.

“94 points + Special Value”   

“Selectiv’-harvested, a mix of new and old clones destemmed and co-fermented, 10 days on skins, then pressed to French barriques (10% new) for mlf and 11 months maturation. Bright, clear crimson-purple-hue; Helen’s Hill nailed this wine in a hectic vintage, the fragrant, high-toned flavours of red cherries and berries make oak a vehicle, not an end in itself.”
James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020

“(…).  Enjoyable”   

“Single vineyard pinot noir. Helen’s Hill name doesn’t appear on the front label but it does in the fine print.  Amiable.  Enjoyable.  Red berries fruits with undergrowth, sweet spice and (attractively) sour acidity.  Maintains good flow and form throughout.  Nicely done.”
Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, July 2019

“(…).  Top Value.”   

“Light to middling red/purple hue, with a fragrant dark cherry aroma, the palate fresh and bright and intense, lively and zesty, loaded with tangy panache.  There’s a sweet core and a slightly bunchy bitterness to follow. Delicious crunchy style pinot.  Top value.”
Huon Hooke, The Real Review, June 2019
