2021 Hirsch Maritime Pinot Noir

United StatesRedHighly RecommendInternationalNew ArrivalsPrivate Cellar

$ 275.00 AUD


David Hirsch planted the Maritime Fields in 1990. Just five years later, they tragically succumbed to the vine disease phylloxera. Undaunted, he replanted them. 2021 marks just the third release of the Hirsch Maritime Estate Pinot Noir, twenty-nine years after first breaking ground. This wine is a deep expression of a unique and particular place, and a celebration of David's determination and optimism. This wine is deeply evocative of the coast and the unique terroir of the Maritime Fields.

About the wine

Tasting notes

The 2021 Maritime impresses with a bounty of fresh fruit that nicely balances the savoury flavours that make this wine such a unique expression of Hirsch Vineyards. Upon opening, the fruit is sapid and youthful, with notes of pomegranate, rose petal, blackberry and black cherry. With air, hints of moss and forest floor emerge, evoking the redwood trees that encircle this section of the vineyard. On the palate, the fruit is juicy and bright, and the tannins are notable.
