The Helen’s Hill wine range celebrates passion, persistence and the genuine connection between people and land. Distinctly Yarra Valley, it’s earthy, it’s gamey, it's the 2020 Long Walk Pinot Noir. One of wineries the finest achievements is that they take the unique characteristics of the ‘terroir’ that the Yarra provides, and bottle it. It’s all here waiting for you to discover and enjoy. Appearance: Vibrant cherry red. Aroma: Rich black cherries, raspberry, hints of spice and earthy characters. Oak is present on the nose but not over powering. Flavour: Dark cherry and ripe bramble fruits with cloves. Excellent tannin structure supporting earthy flavours.

Scores & Reviews

95 / 100

James Halliday

(2019 vintage) "A deeply coloured blend of MV6, Pommard and Dijon 115 clones. Destemmed, crushed, open-fermented, 10 days on skins, matured for 9 months in French puncheons (30% new). A rich and deep pinot, with satsuma plum the dominant player promising much for the future as spicy notes build. The tannin and oak management is spot on."

Campbell Mattinson

(2015 vintage) "No fuss, in a good way. It does its thing and it does it well. Cherries and foresty berries, a splash of spice, some clove-like notes. Grapey tannin. Varietal. Lipsmacking. You get the picture. It’s good drinking."

Stuart Knox

(2019 vintage) "Medium and bright ruby colour in the glass. Dark cherry, cedar shavings and boudin noir aromas. Bold on entry, big fruit, char and meat notes all rush in. It tapers a little from the middle into the finish with tannins as bold as the fruit come into play, leaving a long and very dry finish. Time in the glass brought it together well "
