The Pinot noir at Scary Gully is one of the highest and oldest in the Adelaide Hills and sits upon a ridge of sandstone and quartz. The 2022 vintage ended up being even cooler and later than the 2021 growing season, so again we had some serious farming challenges on the steep slopes in the wet! However, the low yielding, cool and slow ripening season has resulted in wines that have a depth and tension we rarely achieve in the Hills. It is no doubt that the 2022 vintage will go down as one of the great years for Pinot noir.
