GROSSET ADELAIDE HILLS PINOT NOIR 2009 GROSSET ADELAIDE HILLS PINOT NOIR 2009

While various producers have built their reputation on Pinot Noir, none has equalled the success Grosset has enjoyed with this variety grown in the Adelaide Hills. Given that the re-planting of vineyards in the Adelaide Hills has only occurred since the early 1980s, their full potential is only just emerging.


ONLY AVAILABLE IN UNSPLIT CASES OF 12


VINEYARD
The grapes for this wine are grown in the Central Adelaide Hills region, from two different, low yielding vineyards just below and north of Mount Lofty. Altitude is between 450 - 500 m above sea level.

GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Pinot Noir

VINIFICATION
As in previous years, 40% whole bunches were added to each of the tiny fermenters which were plunged by foot every five hours. Immediately after pressing, the wine was run into barrels (60% of which was new French oak) and left on its lees for 12 months.

TASTING NOTE
The 2008 Grosset Pinot Noir is delicious and seductive. Displaying excellent varietal character, it has flavours of mulberries, brambles, blackcurrants and velvety texture with ripe and fine tannins, and a long lasting finish.
