DESCRIPTION
  • Murdoch Hill's vineyards are located behind the township of Oakbank in the beautiful Adelaide Hills. Producing excellent Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. There has been a lot of blood sweat and tears along the way. Now, with 20 vintages under their belts the results speak for themselves. Winemaker Michael Downer was awarded Young Gun of Wine, 2017.

    The Ridley Pinot x Three is a blend made in heaven - Pinot Noir, Meunier and Gris. This wine gives bright red fruits, delicate up front fruit profile with exotic spices, vibrant acid and fine whole bunch tannin.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    A blend of 60% Pinot Noir 30% Pinot Meunier from a from a very cool South facing vineyard in the higher parts of the Piccadilly Valley, producing grapes with high natural acid and exotic spices. 10% Pinot Gris from a small Lenswood vineyard. Three grapes were fermented separately using a high proportion of whole bunches, spontaneous fermentation and a gentle extraction to produce a delicate style of wine. Each parcel matured in natural French barriques for 5 months before bottling with no fining or filtration.

    TASTING NOTES

    The Pinot Meunier gives bright red fruits with a generous up front fruit profile, the Pinot Noir provides exotic spices and a fine acid line with stalky firm tannins. While the Pinot Gris gives aromatic lift and texture to the wine.

  • REVIEWS

    'Lithe, fine, smashable red of delicate, brisk fruit character yet a sense of quiet complexity. Scents of red cherry, kirsch, maraschino, green herbs. The palate pale in texture but built around lacy sheets of crisp, lightly crunchy red berry fruit, dried herb and pepper spice and pomegranate acidity. Great length, pretty delicacy, finesse. This is just so lovely. I bet a chill would do it service too. Brilliant new wave Australian wine.'
