2017 Hurley Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir $45

Hurley Vineyard wraps north to east around the crest of a little volcanic hill in Balnarring on the Mornington Peninsula of Victoria. It is comprised of three distinct climats reflecting aspect: Lodestone: the north -facing vineyard of 3 acres that was planted in 1999 Hommage: the north-east facing vineyard of 2.5 acres that was planted in 1998/1999 Garamond: the east-facing vineyard of 3 acres that was planted in 1998.

This wine is blended from all of the barrels of Lodestone, our north-facing vineyard of clones 114, 115, 777 and MV6, plus some barrels of Hommage (north-east facing and G5V15 and MV6) and Garamond (east-facing and MV6). Harvested by hand on 10, 18, and 24 March, basket-pressed on 29 March and 4,9 and 13 April 2017 and, after twenty months in French Oak barrels of 228L (twenty-five per cent new), bottled on 5 November 2018. Closed with Diam cork.

The colour is bright ruby. There is a complex and heady nose of sour cherries, raspberries, red currants, dried herbs and charcuterie meats. A closely-knitted palate of medium weight carries deep flavours of red and black fruits of the forest with savoury elements that are enveloped in ultra-fine, mouth coating tannins. This wine is balanced and supple and finishes freshly with flare and persistence. Alc/vol. 13.7%  To 2025
