The Wine

North-facing vineyard of 1.4 hect that was planted in 1999. It’s exposition due North means it gets the most sun exposure of the three climats. It contains the Burgundian clones 114, 115 and 777, as well as MV6. Lodestone is magnetite, an iron mineral abundant in the vineyard soil hence the name.

Aromatically sitting in the black fruit spectrum. Lighter in colour than the other two climats and also a little more savoury with some nice structure. Certainly, this wine speaks of the soil, rocky even, on the palate. Excellent wine!

 "Medium-light ruby/brick-red colour; the bouquet is very foresty, savoury, underbrush and humus, leaf litter and flake tobacco. Ethereal faded flowers. In the mouth, it's fine and firm, light to medium bodied and yet has good intensity and focus in the middle palate, the finish cleansed by balanced, drying tannins. Lovely flavour in a more savoury style of Pinot." 92 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review

About the Wine Maker

The Hurley Vineyard wines are a set of Pinot Noirs built out of a singular focus shared by husband and wife team, Kevin Bell and Tricia Byrnes. The vineyard is located in Balnarring on the Mornington Peninsula. If vintage conditions allow, three separate Pinot Noirs from three individual blocks are made, showcasing the differences in style across their excellent site. The original Hurley Farm was established by Irish settlers William and Johanna Hurley back in the 1860s. Burgundy clearly inspired them to this endeavour, not to mimic the wines from the Cote d’Or in terms of taste but the ethos of single site expressions, terrior driven wines.
