The Helen’s Hill wine range holds the spirit of those who have gone before us. It celebrates passion, persistence and the genuine connection between people and land. Each wine is hand crafted and under goes an arduous selection process before it makes it into a Helen’s Hill bottle. As we know, great wine is made in the vineyard and as such only small select parcels of fruit from certain rows of our single vineyard site are hand picked at harvest. Each wine is fermented in select French oak barrels under the watchful eye of winemaker Scott McCarthy. Prior to bottling each barrel is tasted and ranked with only the best barrels selected for the Helen’s Hill range of wines.
Helen’s Hill ‘The Smuggler’ Abel Clone Pinot Noir 2016
Single Vineyard, Single Clone, Single Focus.
Made entirely from Abel clone and sourced from low lying, easterly facing vines at Helen’s Hill in Coldstream, this Pinot has become an in house favourite at the winery.
The terroir of these vines allows for the slow ripening fruit to display powerful red fruits on the front palate. This wine isn’t finished there though as ample structure in the form of acid and silky tannin provides great length and intensity all the way to the back palate. Ready to drink now, but ageing in the bottle with add further complexity.
