2020 Clarence House Estate Block 1 Pinot Noir
Clarence House was built in 1830 on land which was originally the market garden for the City of Hobart. The present owner, David Kilpatrick, first planted vines on the North-East slopes of Clarence Plains in 1998.
The 2020 Clarence House Estate Block 1 Pinot Noir was produced by Anna Pooley and Justin Bubb at Pooley Wines.
A combination of 115 and 777 clones from our oldest block in the vineyard. Fifteen percent whole bunches of 777 were included, wild fermentation, aged in a combination of new and old French oak puncheons. This marks the second release of the Block 1 Pinot.
Floral, red and black fruits, forest elements and mixed spices. Seamless palate, textural yet buoyed by fresh, lively acidity and a long, tannin-infused finish. Will age well, however enjoyment in its youth may be hard to resist.
Available in a 6 pack at a special discounted price of $300.
