Murdoch Hill Pinot Noir 2023

It’s an elegant, perfumed and spicy release, full of red-fruited vibrancy with a lovely core of pure flavour and a delicious, mouth-watering close.Fermentation took place in small open-top fermenters with just a small portion of whole bunches (5%). Downer decreased that component this year, explaining the Lenswood fruit already brings sufficient spice and structure to this year’s wine. Maturation occurred in barriques and puncheons for 10 months (20% new).

About MURDOCH HILL

Adelaide Hills is buzzing with change and innovation and Murdoch Hill is a producer that is at the vanguard. It's worth pointing out that Murdoch Hills is not a new player in the Australian wine scene the Estate vineyards were planted by the Downer family in 1998. But it has been the return of the family's youngest member, Michael Downer, to take over the vineyard management and winemaking duties, that has created the excitement here.

Michael cut his teeth at Shaw & Smith, Vietti in Barolo and Best's Great Western before returning home to take over the everyday running of the family estate in 2012. He quickly burst onto the scene with his adventurous small-batch Artisan series, working with fruit from exceptional parcels in the Adelaide Hills. And, while this series continues to showcase Downer's exceptional eye for quality fruit and progressive winemaking chops, he's never lost sight of his transition from winemaker to grower, which he believes will come to define his career at Murdoch Hill.

Murdoch Hill's Oakbank property was planted by Downer's parents in 1998. The first action upon his return was to bring the winemaking in-house and address soil health, which he admits was pretty bleak at the time. With 20-hectares under vine (and 300-head of cattle) to manage, the process has taken time. Michael Downer is not trying to reinvent the wheel, he explains. Instead, he is making incremental adjustments to his farming to better coax the inherent natural beauty and purity of his fruit from soil to glass. In Michael's own words, It's really just taking the best possible fruit that I can grow in our vineyard and capturing that and putting it in the bottle. Not taking too much out of the wine or putting anything into it.
