Pinot Noir Williams Hill 2017

A perennial favourite! This Pinot Noir is a well weighted wine with dark red fruits intermixed with savoury and herb notes.
There’s a reason this wine sells out every year!

This month in the Cellar…

All quiet inside the winery. Our Rosé 2018 has been bottled and released. Next on the list will be the Riesling and Pinot Gris sometime towards the end of the year. Both wines are still in tank & barrel on full gross lees as part of efforts to increase each wines texture and weight. Our two reds, Pinot Noir and Syrah are quietly maturing in barrel, no much happening apart from weekly topping as they await the warmer spring temperatures which will kickstart the natural malolactic fermentation.

Out in the Vineyard…

Pruning, one of the bigger tasks in the vineyard each season is now complete, just in time as the weather has begun to get warmer, spring is here and the vines will soon awake from winter dormancy as the soil temperature rises. Budburst in the vineyard is usually around the 10th September most years although the districts fruit trees are already beginning to blossom so that might be a sign of an early start. Its been a relatively mild winter, warmer and drier than usual.
