2018 Apricus Hill Pinot Noir

6 bottles

In stock.

This Pinot noir was fermented in small 1 tonne batches with twice daily plunging of the ”cap” formed by the gape skins. Maturation for 10 months in new and second fill French oak on yeast lees has introduced a creamy mid palate texture. In an effort to preserve the subtle complexities, this Pinot has been bottled unfined and unfiltered. A clear crimson with youthful purple hues. In an effort to preserve the subtle complexities, this Pinot has been bottled unfined and unfiltered. Bright red fruits combine with hints of darker plums and cherry with an earthy, gamey mid palate with hints of mushroom and a spicy finish of soft tannins. A vibrant lifted nose of black cherry and strawberry complemented by spicy vanillin French oak. This wine will improve with up to 10 years careful cellaring.

92 pts - National Liquor News

“Wonderfully balanced with ripe red fruits, soft structured tannins and an acidity that complements a long finish.” – Kristy Farrell. “Pleasant red fruits, dried herbs and cedary oak. Hints of mint. Good mouthfeel, fine tannins, integrated acid and oak in the back.” – Christine Ricketts

92 pts – Stuart Robinson (Vinsomniac)

Has an immediate appeal, primary fruit, of cherry and strawberry (in fact it immediately had me recalling something like a Cherry Danish). Yet, for that primary fruit, lurking furtively are more savoury elements, dried leaf matter something piney, nigh evergreen forest resinous. Generous acidic presence, gives cut and thrust across the palate. Semblance of fruit, again with savoury nuances. It's not necessarily speaking of anything in particular. It has presence, volume and definite persistence of flavour. A wine of presence, place, personality.
