Details

Ruby-red colour with some depth, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full with a well-concentrated core of dark-red berry fruit and raspberry liqueur, entwined with dark herbs, savoury red florals and suggestions of whole bunch stalk-like perfumes.

Medium-full bodied, the palate has softly packed flavours of dark-red berry fruits with raspberry notes and dark herbs at the heart. Dark-red florals, savoury stalk perfumes, liquorice and spice notes emerge in the glass.

The palate has good depth and the fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction lending texture and structure, with integrated acidity. The wine carries to a soft, lingering finish of dark-red fruits, herbs and a little spice. This is a softly concentrated Pinot Noir with dark-red berry fruit and dark herbs, floral and spice notes on a fine-structured palate.

Match with poultry, pork and lamb dishes.

Hand-picked fruit, 50% clones 667 and 777 from ‘O’Dwyers Farm’ and 50% clone 115 from the ‘Long Lane Vineyard’, indigenous yeast fermented with a high proportion of whole berries and 10% whole clusters to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 30% new French oak barrels. 1

The Scarborough Pinot, is a complete contrast to the Vavasour Pinot. It's seen little oak, but the purity of fruit really shines. Smells like an Otago Pinot, was the mouth feel of a $500+ Burgundy.

A simple, yet perfectly made wine. (Posted on 02/02/2016)
