Helen’s Hill Long Walk Pinot Noir 2019 Victoria Yarra Valley

Helen’s Hill Long Walk Pinot Noir 2019 is choc a block full of dark cherries, musk, spice and vanilla wood – fetching sort of earthy minerality here too.

The Helen’s Hill Pinot Noir is made primarily from the largest block of Pinot Noir we have on the property. Each one of the 120 rows is 520 metres long. Doing that math, that is over 60 kilometres of vines. So, when it comes times to pull on the boots and venture out into the Pinot block you know you are in for a seriously long walk. We love to spend our days out there in ‘long walk’ block, getting our hands dirty and wearing out the soles of our blundstones.

Speaking of getting down and dirty, that’s what you can expect when you taste the Long Walk Pinot Noir. Distinctly Yarra Valley, it’s earthy, it’s gamey, it’s certainly not a pretty Pinot Noir. One of our finest achievements is that we take the unique characteristics of the ‘terroir’ that the Yarra provides, and we bottle it. It’s all here waiting for you to discover and enjoy.

Helen’s Hill Vintage Report 2019

I think that this has been said by a lot of people – 2019 what a vintage! The Yarra Valley has done it again!

The growing season started with a little wetter than normal spring, it then warmed up with some lovely consistent weather that produced a great fruit set and healthy cropping levels.

The ripening season came upon us with a vigour that’s above average! We had some warmer than normal temperatures that saw the fruit develop beautiful flavours and intensity.  Another year of little to no disease in the vineyard has created a very strong and healthy crop which has survived the higher temperatures of the ripening season.

This was a standout year for our Breachley Block Chardonnay and our Hilltop Syrah. Both displayed excellent flavours during veraison and are definitely ones that are going to develop into something truly special!

Pinot as a whole was a great year but this year’s single clone Pinots are looking spectacular and definitely the ones to watch! These wines are just getting better every year and are an amazing expression of the Pinot Noir variety. We are particularly looking forward to seeing how our ‘Smuggler’ Reserve Pinot develops with some time in oak, as it was the highlight of the years Pinot’s coming out of the press.

The dark horse for the year is our Merlot! This is a highly underrated wine displaying beautiful blackcurrant flavours with a little hint of spice with smooth tannins!
