HVD & The Hill Pinot Noir

HVD & The Hill Pinot Noir is a combination of fruit from the HVD vineyard and any from the 4 and 8 Acres vineyards (The Hill) that doesn’t make it into Vat 6. It has a pretty nose of strawberries and a hint of spice and earth. The palate is long and fine with silky tannins and wonderful balance.

94 Points - From the 4-and 8-acre red soil vineyards, MV6 clone planted in the ‘80s; hand-sorted, open fermentation with one-third whole bunches; 8 months maturation in used French oak. A remarkable wine for its clear varietal expression; very good mouthfeel, the tannins finely pitched and woven through the plum and black cherry fruit. Time will see its Hunter Valley birthplace speak more assertively. 13% ale. Drink to 2028

Will get better over time but gee it’s hard to resist as a light and bright summer red. Soft and supple mouth feel, an abundance of sweetish red fruit, integrated spice, earthy characters and juicy tannins

Frank Smith, Perth News 1 January 2015

Tyrrells 2013 HVD and The Hill Pinot Noir has a bright, fresh strawberry aroma light on the nose and great pinot noir characters. The palate is medium bodied and well balanced with a bright fruit profile, a soft tannin structure, fresh acidity and a long finish. A good Pinot.

John Lewis 16 January 2015

4 out of 5 - The HVD vineyard produces great whites, but this blend with The Hill vineyard fruit shows that the pinot noir vines planted in 1980 are also the goods. The wine is crimson, 13.2 per cent alcohol and has candied cherry scents. The front palate has lifted strawberry flavour, the middle palate loganberry, spice, anise and coconutty oak, while flinty tannins home in at the finish. Get it at the Broke Road, Pokolbin, cellar door, at tyrrells.com.au and in some wine stores. DRINK WITH: confit of duck with poached pear and date relish AGEING: eight years

Gary Walsh 22 May 2014

91 Points - Bright strawberry and raspberry fruit, gentle bunchy spice and vanilla oak. Medium bodied, light red fruited, crisp acidity, light grainy tannin and a clean finish. Touch of bunchy stalk firms up the finish. Somewhat cordial like as a young wine, but should develop well with a little bottle age. Tastes like Pinot and a good one at that.
