Hurley Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir 2019 Victoria Mornington Peninsula

$47.95

Hurley Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir 2019

This is blended from selected barrels of Lodestone and Garamond and all the barrels of Hommage. The grapes of these vineyards were harvested by hand on 1, 2, 3 and 4 March 2019, fermented under the action of indigenous yeasts, basket-pressed on 22, 25 and 29 March 2019 and, after twenty months in barrel (one quarter new), bottled on 3 November 2020. Closed with Diam cork.

Bright mid-garnet in colour. Expressive aromas of nougat, ripe cherries and rosewater create an initial impression of ripeness and lift. The palate is intense and persistent with black cherries and cassis complemented by cake spice and a luscious texture balanced by fresh acidity and fine enduring tannins. The overall effect is one of generosity without exaggeration. To 2028. Alc/vol 14.2%

HURLEY VINEYARD VINTAGE 2019

Climatic conditions in vintage 2019 progressed in two halves. Running up to autumn 2019, the conditions were moderate. From then, the conditions were warm. We had to make a difficult decision about when to harvest. On our usual ripening parameters, we would have begun harvest in mid-late February (very early). At that time, the fruit was ‘dumb’ – lacking in aroma and taste, indeed a little green. This is explained by the difference between sugar and flavour (physiological) ripeness in grapes. We decided to wait until the fruit developed better flavour ripeness and character, which occurred in the first week of March. This is why our wines from this vintage are somewhat fuller in body and higher in alcohol than usual. This is not a change of direction in wine style but a considered response to the conditions of this vintage. We offer you flavour-abundant wines with excellent balance and texture that well reflect to terroir of our vineyards in the particular conditions of the 2019 vintage.
