Kings Creed Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2021

Special Price $30.00 Regular Price $35.00
On the bigger side for Pinot Noir, offering red and blue fruits, spice, and cedar. Looks good on opening but definitely benefits from decanting. The inclusion of 10% whole bunches in the ferment has provided some crunch to the structure. Our suggestion, decant about an hour before drinking and enjoy with something duck flavoured.

A venture between luxury drinks specialist David Krenich and former Wallabies Captain Nathan Sharpe. Benn Riggs has been roped in as winemaker. The result is a suite of rich and tasty South Aussie wines well worth tasting.

Considerably cooler than the surrounding plains, the hills are washed in rain during winter months, and the peaks wrapped in fog. It is considered a high rainfall region compared to other Australian regions, but outside of winter the climate is warm and dry. Night time temperatures are the feature - notably cooler than the day when the sun sets. Worth noting is how the average rainfall increases the higher you go, with Mount Lofty picking up 1400mm on the old splash-o-meter compared to 850mm just 10K down the road in Charleston. This range of moisture and altitudes results in a variety of soils, but in general are sand and clay loam over clay subsoils. ... Read Full Article

Mr Riggs, Penny's Hill, Woop Woop, Zonte’s Footstep We often joke that there must be more than one Ben Riggs, that no one winemaker could have his hands in such a range of premium McLaren Vale wineries. And yet, after thorough research (we asked) he has not cloned himself. With 14 years making wine at Wirra Wirra alone, Ben's experience totals a quarter century of producing notable wines, including Penny's Hill, Tatiarra, and Cazal Viel in France. But his real love for McLaren Vale remains, and along with Tony Parkinson, he has crafted successful brands like Woop Woop and his own Mr. Riggs. With such a broad portfolio, Ben picks up awards ...

This range of moisture and altitudes results in a variety of soils, but in general are sand and clay loam over clay subsoils. A bit of shale and ironstone can be found, and the soil is acidic on average and rarely acidic.

The combination of climate and soil lends to superb cool-weather whites like Riesling (if you watch for mould), Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and crisp Chardonnays. Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon can also be found, with the grapes maturing

Ben Riggs sources fruit from a number of McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills vineyards. As a member of the Galvanised Wine Group, Ben's relationship with these growers and McLaren Vintners gives him a great portfolio of fruit to create with.
