Luminous Hills

Luminous Hills is the name of the home estate of Seven of Hearts owner and winemaker Byron Dooley. Just three wines are made under this label, the ‘Estate Grown’ Pinot is a blend across the site while ‘Lux’ and ‘Astra’ are specific selections of blocks of vines and Pinot Noir clones matched together to create superior wines of some style. Lux takes in two clones from two particular areas, a Pommard clone from the lower slopes providing depth and body while 777 clone from volcanic Jory soil gives the wine lift, lightness and elegance. Astra is all about dramatic aromatic fruit from the Northeastern blocks of vineyard.
