DESCRIPTION
  • 'Mike Press has been working like a demon to refine pinot noir in his single vineyard at Lobethal, high in the Adelaide Hills …'
    Tyson Stelzer

    Mike Press Wines, located in the internationally acclaimed wine region of Adelaide Hills in South Australia, sets the benchmark for quality wine at an outstanding price.

    Mike is hands on in all aspects of Mike Press Wines from working in the vineyard, through to making the wine, and getting it ready for the market.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    This is the fifth vintage of Mike’s new Pinot Noir using grapes grown from the 777 clone. The grape bunches are thinned three times during the growing season to maximise intensity of the fruit flavour. The wine is matured in French oak and receives minimal filtration.

    The nose is floral with slight earthy overtones. The high altitude of the single vineyard is captured in the elegant palate.

    Alc/vol - 14.0%

  • REVIEWS


    'Bunch thinning thrice during the growing season and maturation in French oak does not sound like the recipe for a pinot noir that sells for less than $17. It tastes like it’s worth double its price, an elegant expression of this high vineyard, capturing rose petal fragrance and morello cherry and strawberry hull flavours, framed in finely structured tannins and tangy acidity. It carries with length and character, and will blossom in time, propelled as much by acidity as tannin.'
