Broderick Vineyard, Basket Range and Mawson Ridge Vineyard, Forest Range.
Adelaide Hills winemaking mythology is that where cherries grow well (cool), so does Pinot Nero (Noir to the Frenchies). I agree, enter Basket Range and Forest Range.
These two vineyards are in sub-regions that the old-timers call ‘Stringy country’ where the thin sandy soils grow many Stringybark eucalypt trees.
The Broderick Vineyard has some north in its aspect and is a bit warmer, lending some generosity to the wine and Mawson Ridge at 550m elevation is very cool, characteristically earthy and fragrant.
Between them there are 5 clones of Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) 114, 115, 777, MV6 and D5V12.
Hand picked, some whole bunches, wild ferments. It has succulence and some deeper earthy notes.
