2015 Tarrington Pinot Noir
From a 2ha vineyard situated about 2km from the Hochkirch property.
This is lighter in style than the Maximus and has red fruit character where Maximus has dark fruit, Volnay compared with Gevrey perhaps? In any case this is in the zone too and delivers a sensual experience of cherry, strawberry, sous-bois, forest and earth. Superb. Hochkirch vineyard lies on a north facing slope 250m above sea level along an elevated plateau running southwest from Dunkeld at the foot of the Grampians in far south west Victoria. The vines are not irrigated and no synthetic fungicides, pesticides or fertilisers are used; currently certified bio-dynamic by Demeter.
