Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery
Aromas of raspberry and clove spice are followed by flavours of cherry with notes of tobacco and oak.
When preparing to re-plant the vineyards in 1982, we cleared out an old barn of Henry’s and found the broken frame of a wagon and its wheels.
As the property was once an inn on a toll-road (Stagecoach Road, later Pelham Road) and in its heyday the site of a horse track, it only seemed right to restore some piece of the vineyard’s antiquity. This painted wagon sits prominently in front of our tasting room today and is the moniker for this Pinot Noir (a grape that is often characterized as both horsey and, like racing, the wine of kings).
