SKU
ATPN202010 UCAU
Very elegant and pale in colour, slight garnet coming through, started on nose a little confectionary but has some great gamey, white florals, clove, white ground pepper, sanguine. A wonderful expression of Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir! High, well balanced acid line which all premium pinot should have! Saline backbone, regular suspects in red fruits with some, blood orange, hint of caramel. Quite well integrated and a long length. Exquisite!.

    "Quite pale in colour and restrained in aroma; strawberry, redcurrant, clove, floral but also slightly gamey. On the palate it sings- red fruits, blood orange, hint of cedar and cinnamon oak and a razor line of cool-climate acidity. Does the job very nicely."

    "The inaugural release and it’s a very pretty wine. A pale ruby hue with delicate aromatics of red cherries and woodsy spices, Campari and a waft of what smells like whole-bunch aromatics. It also has that distinct Adelaide Hills spearmint note, working well as a seasoning. The palate is lighter framed, with fine tannins and a juiciness throughout. This is the type of pinot that is well-suited to warmer weather, so don’t be afraid to give it a slight chill. A lovely drink."

Locations

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

South Australia

If you like Australian wine, then you probably like South Australia wine. The rich reds produced there put Australia on the wine-making map of the world. With over 40% of the country's vineyards, South Australia can rightfully call itself the wine state.

Wines are produced in several regions throughout the state, though many are naturally grouped together, like Barossa and Eden Valleys, only 15 minutes apart. They include such regions as Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Eden Valley, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, The Limestone Coast, McLaren Vale and Wrattonbully to name but a few!

Barossa Valley boasts some of the oldest vines in Australia dating back to 1843 and produces some of the world's finest Shiraz, whilst the 'terra rossa' soils of Coonawarra is most suited to producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignons. If you're a fan of Riesling, Clare Valley is a great place to explore and for a Maritime climate not dissimilar to parts of the Italian coastline, seek out the wines from McLaren Vale.

Adelaide Hills

Famous for their Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir, the viticulture of this region was re-established in 1979 but grapes were planted locally as early as 1839. During the last three decades, Adelaide Hills has emerged as one of Australia’s most exciting cool climate wine region, being known to produce elegant, distinct, sophisticated wines. Located in the Mount Lofty Ranges and only a 30 minute drive from Adelaide, this region is home not only to over 90 wine labels and 48 cellar doors, but also to multiple forests, beef and dairy farms, apple and pear orchards.

Known to be one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, the Adelaide Hills are made up of two registered sub regions: Lenswood and Piccadilly Valley. These narrow band of hills stretch across to be approximately 70 km long and 30 km wide and border Barossa and Eden Valleys to the North and McLaren Vale to the South.

The climate of this region is considerably cooler compared to other wine regions in the summer, due to the altitudes of the vineyards being 400-700 meters high. The cooler drier climate produces grapes with ideal fruit composition, creating the perfect balance of flavour and acidity.

About the brand Atlas Wines

The wines from Adam Barton are some of the best we’ve seen from South Australia. They capture all that has made the regions famous, yet they’re made in a sophisticated, high quality style that puts them in another class. They certainly over deliver for the money.

A bottle of 1965 Lindemans Hunter River Burgundy (one of the greatest wines of the 20th century) lit the fire for his oenology degree. Since then he has wasted no time, working with Scarpantoni Estate (McLaren Vale), Rolf Binder (Barossa Valley), Wynns Coonawarra Estate and the iconic Californian Bonny Doon Vineyard.

In 2007, Barton and his wife Amy purchased an 8ha vineyard on a stony ridge on the eastern side of the Clare Valley, which had been offered for sale by Kilikanoon. Their vision for Atlas was pretty simple: to produce great wine from the highest-quality fruit available

Barton is totally committed to small plot, individual vineyard sites that make a strong statement about their terroir, giving the grapes he vinifies the maximum opportunity to speak loud and clear.
