2023 Spring Vale 'Melrose' Pinot Noir
Bright, young, fresh and uncomplicated.
The Spring Vale "Melrose" Pinot Noir is made for those who like to taste the fruit of the vines, not overly extracted, not too oaky, just beautiful fruit fermented into wine then put into bottle! Not too simple though – with a mix of 8 different Pinot Noir clones plus some mushroomy Pinot Meunier the aroma is a mixed bag of game and earthy notes with uplifted, luscious strawberry and raspberry fruits. On the palate the bright and fresh red berry fruits nest in a bed of soft, slurpable tannins with just enough acidity to keep the finish rolling until the next glass is poured. - Winery note
