Cloudbreak Pinot Noir 2021


Sourced from their vineyards in the Onkaparinga sub-region of the Adelaide Hills, which are at an altitude of between 365 and 400 metres above sea level, the temperatures here are considerably cooler than the neighbouring regions. As with all of these wines, a tiny production of just 1,800 bottles. This, and the Chardonnay are both in rather appealing squat bottles. A lighter crimson colour, this is an exciting addition to the ranks of top Adelaide Hills Pinots. A very appealing nose, slightly sappy and briary. Red fruits, florals, dried herbs and tobacco leaves. A hint of bay leaf as well. Seamless with the silkiest of textures and very fine tannins. Impressive length too with bright acidity. This is very more-ish in style. An elegant Pinot which is impossible not to like enormously.
