The cool, moist climes which surround the seven acre, steeply sloped Ashton Hill property sublimate into ideal food wines, well proportioned and fully flavoured. Pinot Noir grows well on the Ashton Hill property, coinciding with the proprietor's own love of all good things Pinot Noir. Stephen George grew up amongst the vines at Glenloth near Reynella and nascent Skillogalee in the Clare Valley, which was originally planted to vine by George's father in 1970. He is one of South Australia's most peer respected winemaking viticulturalists, a pioneer of Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir and a consultant to Clare Valley's eminent Wendouree, recipients of the exceptional Langton's classification of Australian wine. Alcohol 14.0%
Stephen George established three hectares of dry grown vines in Piccadilly Valley during the early 1980s, yields from this tiny patch of terroir remain extremely scant. A juggling act of no fewer than fifteen different clones to construct the consumate Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir, from a terroir and mesoclime very similar to Burgundy, a labour of love for one of the industry's most accomplished and venerated identities. Blend No.1 is made from fruit grown to Jim Griggs neighbouring Cemetery Block vineyard.
Bright scarlet colour. Complex bouquet of currants, cherry and red fruits, spices, earth characters and leaf. Palate exhibits exceptional balance and superb length, luscious, berry flavoured tannins courtesy of bunch stalks in the vinification, all nicely integrated after nine months repose under French oak.

Stephen George is one of the most naturally gifted winemakers in Australia

Ashton Hills Vineyard winemaker Stephen George has long been regarded as an early pioneer of the now well established viticultural precincts of Adelaide Hills. Stephen established his 3ha dry grown Ashton Hills Vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley in the early 1980s and began producing its first wines in 1987. The style reflects the region’s strong similarity to Burgundy and production levels have stayed true to the boutique nature of the winery’s beginnings.
