The Basket Town Red is from the villages of Summertown (Cemetery Block vineyard, Jenny and Jaime Griggs), Basket Range (Estate vineyard) and Piccadilly (Eurilla vineyard, Alan Dean). The Basket Town red reflects the vintage each year with the intention of blending the parcels to show the subtle complexity of red fruits and acid structure freshness that makes Piccadilly Valley pinot so attractive when handled with care.

The grapes were harvested in late March, but a cooler ripening season meant that the potential alcohol was low although the phenolic ripeness and acidity were excellent. At harvest the fruit was chilled then destemmed with between 10% and 50% whole bunches used depending on the parcel. The ferments were pressed at around 10 days with the wine settled in tank and allowed to pass through malo- lactic fermentations. The elevage was for 6 months in barriques and hogsheads on fine lees. The parcels were blended and aged for a further 4 months in stainless steel.

The wine is pretty and red fruited, distinctively pinot with cherries and savoury characters – very pleasant.
