Clemens Hill 2015 Clone 777 'Aurelia' Pinot Noir
Winery : Clemens Hill
Clemens Hill is located in Tasmania's Coal Valley. This is the 'Reserve level' Pinot Noir.
Clone 777 was planted in Tasmania about the same time as Dijon clones 114 and 115. Wines with 100% 'triple 7' are very rare - I think Tamar Ridge Reserve from the White Hills vineyard is the only other one - and quite fascinating. Clemens Hill grows this clone beautifully, producing an intense pinot with dark briar fruits, satisfying slightly gritty texture with great acid and tannin balance.
