Spring Vale 2015/16 Pinot Noir
Winery : Spring Vale Vineyard
Spring Vale, from Cranbrook on Tasmania's East Coast is one of Tasmania's best-known pinots. The Lyne family whose generations have farmed Spring Vale since 1875, diversified from sheep farming to grape growing in the 1980s.
With each new vintage release, Spring Vale settles confidently into an exotic, alluring style of pinot that makes its presence felt through insinuation and texture.
Perfectly poised weight and the perfume and spice of the bazaar - sweet berries/cherries, rose petals, cumquat, clove and cardamom - and these elements develop beautifully in a large glass. In the mouth it's full of natural pinot life, in a graceful, supple way and the wine glides beautifully over the palate.
