Pinot Noir Blend 2018 – Black Market Deal #36299
- Elegant, lighter
- Adelaide Hills
Everyone knows that the Adelaide Hills region makes ripper pinot noir. But those in-the-know, know that they also excel at cool climate, spicy syrah. In this case, the producer has combined the two, to make a vibrantly wonderful blend. The savouriness from pinot has been blended with the spice from syrah, the elegance of the former and the depth of the latter. The wine has been aged for over a year in barrel before blending and is ready to go. Light to medium-bodied, full of both bright and brooding fruit and a long and savoury finish.

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
