The 2018 Derwent Estate Lime Kiln Point Pinot Noir aromas are vibrant and fresh, with raspberry, cherry, and red fruit. The palate whilst delicate is rich, think cherry, berry fruits, and powdery tannins. Pure fresh primary fruits dominate with underlying tannins and acidity providing great support for this excellent example of early release café style Pinot Noir.

Winery & Vintage Info

Nestled perfectly on North facing slopes which run down to the Derwent River, the vineyard has a perfect aspect for the production of cool climate wine grapes. Prevailing Westerly winds keep good airflow through the vines and air circulation is critical in keeping the vineyard disease free. Here at Derwent Estate we do not use any Insecticides or nasty Pesticides at all. We prefer a softer Integrated Pest Management approach to disease control.

From humble beginnings in 1992 of one variety and block, stage 1 of our planting was increased to 4 varieties and over 4.5 hectares by 1997. As Derwent Estate and Grantons reputation grew for producing stunning fruit, keen interest was attracted by several major wine companies for us to grow small parcels of super premium fruit for them. This saw stage 2 of the vineyard development commence in 2003 as a 5.3 hectare planting which supplied grapes for the Bay of Fires Wines and the Penfolds Yattarna label. We currently have 10 hectares under vine which includes 5 different varieties.

The 2018 Lime Kiln Point Pinot Noir fruit was sourced from 3 Vineyards. Derwent Estate, one in the Coal River Valley and another 35-year-old dry grown vineyard in the Hillwood area. All 3 vineyards are managed with VSP trellising and the fruit is hand picked.
