    cracka review

    This is a Pinot Noir with altitude - 900m of it to be exact. The fruit is grown in the heady heights of Mount Canobolas, an extinct volcano, in the Orange wine region of NSW. It shows dark, brambly, hedgerow berries with a lick of spice and rose florals. The palate is spicy with a red cherry centre, savoury-edged tannins and a dry, long finish. It will cellar for a few years, but if you can't wait, drink it now with some Peking duck pancakes.

    winemaker's notes

    The vineyard at Gordon Hills was established in 1999 on a 10 hectare planting on the northern slopes of Mount Canobolas in Orange.

    The Pinot Noir is grown 900 metres above sea level enabling the fruit the benefit of the cool climate of what is now regarded as one of Australia's most desirable wine regions.

    The blend of clones MV6, 777, 114 and 115 was handpicked and naturally fermented by wild yeast and matured for 10 months in 25% new French oak. The winemaker suggests that this dark and brambly wine will cellar for many years.

    Gordon Hills is committed to producing only the highest quality wines. The second Pinot Noir vintage from Gordon Hills builds on the success of the 2010 vintage.
