Chardonnay 2018

A luscious style with plenty of complexity, lovers of bold and balanced Pimpernel Chardonnay will certainly not be disappointed! 80% barrel fermented (partial wild), natural malo-lactic fermentation without restriction and 14 months maturation in 40% new oak has given this wine incredible richness and structure. The generosity of fruit make it hard not to drink this wine immediately, but we are very excited by its potential over the decade.

RRP $60.

HR Pinot Noir 2017

A new style of Hill Road - we think the best yet. With fruit sourced from a single vineyard site not too far from Pimpernel, we looked to contrast the elegance of fruit with some savoury spice. Made with 1/3 whole bunches fermented and delicately foot stomped before being transferred to elegant French oak. The aroma is spectacularly lifted and pretty with notes of Indian spice, freshly ground coffee and cranberry. The palate plays on this contrast between juicy fruit expression and savoury spice. Dangerously delicious!

RRP $40.

Pinot Noir One 2017

Yet another bold, fruit expressive Pinot Noir One!

Like its predecessors, and particularly reminiscent of the great vintage of 2015, Pinot Noir One 2017 is all about fruit purity and opulence. Entirely destemmed, large portions of whole-berry fermentation give the palate a wonderfully rich, rounded textural feel, underpinned and perfectly complemented by delicate char from the tight grain oak (30% new). Fans of the style will love this wine!

RRP $55.

Pinot Noir Two 2017

The antipode of Pinot Noir One, 'Two' emphasises secondary character expression. Ripe stalks, post fermentation skin soaking for extra tannin (up to 21 days), and carefully chosen charry French barriques (30% new) create a wine of intense savoury structure and complexity. 2017 is no exception to the rule. Concentrated, dark and brooding with extremely fine coco-powder tannins, this wine shows tremendous potential for ageing, and will greatly reward those who cellar it.

 RRP $55.

Pinot Noir Three 2017

While we were unable to produce a Pinot Noir Three in 2016 due to the vintage not suiting the style, this was certainly not the case in 2017! Three is made with fruit sourced exclusively from our close grown half acre 'triangle' block, situated on 250 tonnes of imported limestone matched to samples sourced from the great DRC. Three is distinctly different from all of the other styles, with a palate that can only be described as ethereal. Extremely limited in production, this is something not to be missed.

RRP $90.

Pinot Noir Four 2017 

Like the duality of One and Two, Four is the bolder, darker alter ego of Pinot Noir Three.

Made with hand selected whole bunches of MV6 clone from our main block, fermentation took place via carbonic maceration. Light hand plunging and foot-stomping were employed to slowly release sugars into the ferment before the wine was transferred to 40% new French oak. This is an incredibly complex Pinot Noir, combining structure and power with delicate fruit expression. Cellar for as long as desired.
