2021 Simon Tolley Pinot Noir Adelaide Hills – Simon Tolley Wines are firm believers that great wine is made in the vineyard. To this end no stone is unturned to grow the best quality fruit they can on theiy family vineyard at Woodside in the Adelaide Hills. To grow the best fruit, they need to select not only the right site but also the right clone to deliver the results that they want to achieve in the finished wine. For Pinot Noir, they have chosen MV6. This clone was firstly planted at Mt Pleasant in the 1920’s and later commercially released in 1971. At this location, it was Penfold’s choice of clone to ultimately get their desired flavours from the region. This clone has moderate yields, bunch size, berry size and bunch compactness and produces fruit with pronounced aromatic and rich berry characters.
A bright crimson red colour with an expressive bouquet and silky smooth tannins. Dark cherry flavours with the subtle influence of whole bunch fermentation providing a hint of forest floor aromas. 10 months maturation in French Barriques and Hogheads adding spice and texture.
