Hochkirch Wines

Victoria | Henty

Our Review

Jennifer and John Nagorcka developed Hochkirch in response to the very cool climate: growing season temperatures are similar to those in Burgundy. A high-density planting pattern was implemented, with a low fruiting wire taking advantage of soil warmth in the growing season, and the focus was placed on pinot noir (5ha), with lesser quantities of riesling, chardonnay, semillon and shiraz. The Nagorckas have moved to Demeter certified biodynamic viticulture and the vines are not irrigated. -JAMES HALLIDAY
