Whisson Lake - Monopole 2017
Region: Adelaide Hills
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Exceptional Pinot Noir grown on the incredibly steep slopes of South Australia's highest commercial vineyard - Whisson Lake. Sprawled accross 15 acres of vertigo inducing hillside on Mount Carey in the Piccadilly Valley, their dry grown and organically farmed vines produce wines of exceptional terroir and finesse, each representing the different microclimates found accross the estate.
The 2017 Monopole is pure and very savoury, with notes of forest floor, strawberry and the usual fine tannin and acidity.
Due to a particularly cool and dry year, just one small barrel of Monopole was made in 2017.
