Trapeze Hickory Downs Pinot Noir 2023

$ 43.90 incl. GST


Hickory Downs vineyard was planted in 2000, and sits in the Diamond Creek/Nillumbik sub region.  Soil is dark grey loam at the surface over yellow mottled clays and gravels.  Fully destemmed, 12 days on skins, and raised in French oak puncheons and hogsheads, 20% new, bottled February 2024.  Sealed under screw cap.

A more cherry-led and lower-toned expression here, dried herbs and a saline quality.  Plenty of berry fruit on the palate, plush and savoury, around cured meat impressions, though what defines this cuvée is its ferrous mineral tail.  Beautifully balanced, a wine that really draws the drinker in.
