Gonzalez Byass UK takes on cult Pinot Noir producer Ashton Hills
A trio of Pinot Noir wines from a cult Adelaide Hills producer is set to be available in the UK for the first time via Gonzalez Byass UK.
Ashton Hills, which was founded in 1982 by Stephen George, has built a reputation for its Australian Pinot Noir and cool climate white wines, and the producer was also instrumental in putting Adelaide Hills on the map as a wine region.
For more than 30 years George has been experimenting with up to 25 Pinot Noir clones, ultimately settling on five key clones that now make the acclaimed Reserve and Estate Pinot Noirs from Ashton Hills, plus a range of sparkling wines.
Gonzalez Byass UK has now taken on Ashton Hills Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir (rsp: £28.00), Ashton Hills Estate Pinot Noir (rsp: £40) and Ashton Hills Reserve Pinot Noir (rsp: £60); the wines will be available through selected independent wine merchants and on-trade accounts.
