Ashton Hills Vineyard

Ashton Hills is a three hectare, dry-grown vineyard that lies in the Piccadilly Valley sub region of the Adelaide Hills on a ridge just below the summit of Mount Lofty. The estate was founded by Stephen George in 1982 and since that time it has built a reputation as one of Australia’s finest proponents of pinot noir and cool climate whites.

Wines from this Winery


Ashton Hills Vineyard Estate Riesling

Reliable winter rains followed by a mild and dryish spring let to good flowering and fruit set for our 2015 Riesling. This was followed by excellent ripening conditions with warm days assisting flavour development and cool nights aiding acid retention. The outcome was our earliest vintage on record and certainly one of our best. With this riesling we again have a wine more European in style than Australian. It has a lightness of body; a fine texture, delicate-yet-intense and rich flavours and a lingering palate. The fresh, natural acidity is balanced by a small amount of grape sugar. Cellar for 10-plus years or drink now by itself or with a wide range of foods from appertisers to entrees, mains, desserts or with cheese. Don't overchill.

Ashton Hills Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir

The Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of fruit from premium Piccadilly Valley vineyards, topped up with a parcel of Ashton Hills reserve/estate fruit. The result is typically a medium bodied palate with the influence of Piccadilly Valley providing juicy fruit from the warmer clime, along with fine structured tannins that are typical of the Ashton Hills Vineyard.

Ashton Hills Sparkling Shiraz

Stephen George’s take on this cult style is, without question, one of the titans of the genre. Given that its fruit is drawn from one of Australia’s most revered vineyards in Wendouree, including a healthy portion from vines planted in 1919, perhaps this will come as no surprise. Crafted from only the best vintages, there’s no denying this special wines breathtaking complexity, texture and balance. Subsequent vintages of the Sparkling Shiraz have consistently demonstrated the style and quality that has made this wine one of the most enduring of its class.

Ashton Hills Reserve Pinot Noir

The Estate Pinot Noir is sourced purely from our five preferred clones.  It is designed to be enjoyed upon release, however careful cellaring will see the wine evolve handsomely for at least another five years.
