2018 Home Hill Estate Pinot Noir Tasmania – The vineyard was planted out in 1992 with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sylvaner grapes. The grey loam, high-clay soil and reliable rainfall provide excellent growing conditions for these varieties.
The Huon Valley sits on the same degree of latitude as Bordeaux in France (albeit forty-three degrees south of the equator rather than north). These regions share a similar climate, with winters featuring fog, frost and snow, and an abundance of spring rain. This allows for the slow ripening of fruit during warm months and the perfect conditions for cool climate wine to be produced.
This wine exhibits all the hall marks of its cool climate origin – clear varietal expression, balance and long concentrated flavours. The 2018 season was warm and dry, resulting in wines with great intensity, purity of fruit and supple tannins. The palate is fresh, vibrant and spicy. The nose is generous and pure with lashings of red cherries, red plum and blueberries. This wine is a delicious balance of fine, linear acidity and the ripe, cherry flavours of a warm season.
