The palate has weight and depth, good soft tannins in abundance, and charmingly aromatic red cherry and floral nuances. It’s fairly plain but very appealing – especially at the price.

Most Pinot Noirs come at a price tag that is not for the everyday drinker. Shame really as Pinot Noir is truly the most versatile, interesting, complex and enjoyable red wine variety that one can drink. (in our humble opinion!!) The price probably reflects the fact that Pinot Noir is difficult to grow. It doesn’t like it to hot, it doesn’t like it to dry (or to wet for that matter) it likes it just right.

At Helen’s Hill Estate, Pinot Noir is by far their biggest grown variety. With over 50 acres under vine Helens Hill have been growing it for many years, supplying well known Pinot Noir labels such as Coldstream Hills and producing their own Helen’s Hill label.

Experience counts when it comes to Pinot Noir and at Helen’s Hill Estate they have certainly had a lot of experiences, not all of them good, but all allowing them to learn what has to be done to make great Pinot.

Ingram Road Pinot Noir is the direct beneficiary of this experience. Probably better said, at $18.00 a bottle our customers are definitely the beneficiaries of our Pinot experience.

Following traditional winemaking processes, utilizing full French oak maturation our Ingram Pinot Noir display rich varietal characters on the nose, sweet cherry and strawberry flavours on the front and mid palate with a savory, earthy (spicy) finish on the back palate. Thanks to the French oak, the wine has a wonderful full textural mouth weight and long lasting finish.

A growing number of high-quality cheaper wines highlights Australia’s maturing pinot growing and making skills. In this instance, Helens Hill Estate’s second label, Ingram Road, delivers the aroma, flavour and structure of decent pinot at an affordable price. It has floral and cherry-like varietal aromas that flow through to a vibrant, medium-bodied palate, supported by fine, firm tannins and completed by earthy and savoury notes. Scott McCarthy makes the wine from estategrownfruit off 12- and 13-yea rold vines. It’s an early drinking style enjoy any time over the next two or three years. http://www.canberratimes.com.au/ Sunday Canberra Times
