2021 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.

Vegan friendly.

93 pts - Ken Gargett (Wine Pilot)

Another impressive Great Southern Pinot Noir, from a single vineyard in Denmark, this one was fermented on skins in small one-tonne batches, plunged twice a day. Maturation was for almost a year in new and second fill French oak, left on its yeast lees. The reason for this is to increase both the texture and the complexity. Unfined and unfiltered it is pale crimson in colour carrying aromas of forest floor, woodsmoke, leather, dried herbs, spices and attractive berry notes. In other words, lots of the things we love about good Pinot. There is good length here and fine, yet chewy tannins providing impressive balance and a lingering finish. This will continue to impress over the next six to eight years. I like this a lot.

92pts - Kim Brebach (BWU20)

It seems this label has found a home at this well-established Great Soutern Winery. This is a tasty Pinot Noir, not fined and filtered judging by the cloudy colour, but showing the characters we expect from a decent Pinot: some sweet fruit, some herbs and dank leaves, forest floor notes, a soft texture and medium weight.
