We are delighted to announce the Main Ridge Estate ‘Half Acre’ Pinot Noir has again been recognised as “Outstanding” in the Langton’s Classification of the top 136 Australian wines.
Reviewed every 4 years, wines are eligible for classification based on their demand, reputation, quality and track record at auction, and are only considered after a minimum of 10 vintages. Here is the Langton’s citation:
Main Ridge Estate’s highly prized and rare Half Acre Pinot Noir’s tiny half-acre block was planted in 1975 on very shallow red basalt soils, and has since tripled in size (to a still miniscule 1.5 acres, or 0.6 hectares).
Burgundian winemaking techniques are followed by maturation in new and one year-old French oak barriques for around 17 months.
Renowned for its glorious perfume, silky smooth texture, fruit complexity and mineral length, the Main Ridge Estate Half Acre Pinot Noir is a compelling reflection of site and meticulous winemaking.
