Lothian of Elgin Pinot Noir Vineyard Selection 2020

Fruit for the Lothian of Elgin Pinot Noir comes from a 3.25ha vineyard planted to two different clones. The grapes were all hand harvested, destemmed and then fermented in open fermenters for a period of ten days. The must was lightly pressed, racked off into French oak barrique (20% new) and malo-lactic fermentation occurs in barrique. The wine was barrel matured for a period of eleven months and lightly filtered prior to bottling to maintain the wines integrity and delicate Pinot flavours. This Pinot Noir offers attractive oak spices, red plum, orange and some oatmeal. Lovely ripeness of fruit on the palate, this has fabulous balance of juicy ripe fruits with dark chocolate, orange and strawberry and red berries with a crisp clean acidity, powdery but light tannins and undulating length of flavour on the extended finish.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.

Great wines, great service

I am extremely happy with the excellent range of sometimes hard to source wines that Hic offer, and their service has been superb.
From my experience I would highly recommend them.
