Ashton Hills is a three hectare, dry-grown vineyard that lies in the Piccadilly Valley sub region of the Adelaide Hills on a ridge just below the summit of Mount Lofty. The estate was founded by Stephen George in 1982 and since that time it has built a reputation as one of Australia’s finest proponents of pinot noir and cool climate whites. Early season hail resulted in a slightly below average yield, with excellent fruit quality. Warm, dry and sunny days over the growing season and vintage resulted in clean fruit of great flavour, while cool nights ensured retention of all important fruit acid. Full ripeness occurred at a modest level of alcohol, with picking on March 24 - a little earlier than usual. Drink early while the wine is fresh and zesty, or in around eight to 12 years to discover complex, developed toasty flavours. Best enjoyed at cellar temperature...usually achieved after about 20 minutes in the fridge. Only 130 dozen made.
