2018 Birthday Hill Pinot Noir
The single vineyard, single clone Portsea Estate Birthday Hill Pinot Noir and Stonecutters Block Chardonnay are made only in a perfect vintage with fruit hand selected from the best sites in our Portsea vineyards . For the 2018 release just 200 cases of each have been produced.
Birthday Hill Pinot noir has been 100% whole bunch fermented, with the ripe, lignified stems creating a wine of immense character, aromatic lift and structure. The nose is dark chocolate, dense brooding red berry fruits, cloves, liquorice, hints of carbonic smokiness and cardamom spice.
