HHPinotNoir

We’ve recently received a number of fantastic reviews from James Halliday and the folks at Wine Companion – a number of our wines have been awarded over 90 points! We thought we’d share these reviews with you below:

Helen’s Hill Estate Long Walk Pinot Noir 2012
The colour is even deeper than that of its Ingram Rd sibling; it is packed with luxurious dark cherry and plum fruit running in an unbroken stream through the bouquet, palate, finish and aftertaste. Exceptional pinot noir, and will hit the heights over the next 5+ years. 97 points.

Ingram Road Pinot Noir 2012

Excellent depth and hue; this is a seriously good pinot at any price; at $19 the value for money is exceptional, its flawless varietal expression of red and black cherries is backed by precisely judged texture and structure. And by all means cellar some. 93 points.

Helen’s Hill Breachley Block Chardonnay 2013

Estate-grown and hand-picked; wild yeast barrel fermentation, then lees-stirred; coupled with the relatively early picking, the approach has worked very well, giving the palate complexity without diminishing its freshness and drive; grapefruit, grilled cashew and oak spice coalesce on the finish. 95 points.

Ingram Road Chardonnay 2012

Hand-picked, wild yeast barrel-fermented and lees-stirred. Bright straw-green; has flourished with an extra year in bottle, nectarine and white peach sustained and lifted by citrussy acidity, grilled cashew/hazelnut nuances adding further interest. 91 points.

Ingram Road Pinot Grigio 2013

Pale quartz; this, as Gilbert & Sullivan might say, is the very model of a pinot grigio, flinty and dry, with pear, apple and a faintly nutty display of discrete flavours before the rocky/minerally finish provides the full stop. 94 points.
