H.P.R. PINOT BELOW COST! Winemaker Hugh Robinson is a Burgundy fanatic. In 1988, his obsession got the better of him, and he set about planting a vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula with D5V12 Pinot Clones, and subsequently followed it up with a further planting of MV6 clones, together with Burgundy clones 114 and 115. Burgundian wine making techniques were employed and crop levels were restricted to just over 1.5 tonnes to the acre. The first two wines we saw from HPR Estate, the 1999 & 2000 were both fantastic examples of Pinot Noir, however, for one reason or another Hugh has decided he’s had enough and is getting out of the industry. Perhaps it was the pruning of vines in the middle of a cold winter, or perhaps he couldn’t make enough money to keep his amazing Burgundy collection going?!

Whatever the case may be, the end result is that the consumer is the winner – BOTH THE 2001 & 2002 VINTAGES ARE BEING CLEARED OUT AT CLOSE TO HALF THEIR NORMAL RETAIL PRICE. BUT YOU’LL NEED TO BE QUICK - PINOT NOIR THIS GOOD DOESN’T COME AROUND TOO OFTEN AT THESE PRICES!

Tasting Note:
A fuller style Pinot. Semi-translucent brick red colour with brick red hue. Strong varietal nose, with a touch of stalk as a top note, followed by notes of cherry, strawberry and spice. Mouthfilling palate with excellent weight and depth of flavour. Flavours of spice, liquorice and black cherry are overlaid with velvet tannins. Perfect balance, with very long aftertaste of spice, black cherry and just a hint of stalkiness re-emerging.
Cellar 4-5 years (2009-2010)
Alc/Vol: 14.0%
