Overview

Delicious bright cherry red fruits are supported by warm earth complexity and a silky finely layered tannin structure.

The 2011 Mount Barrow Pinot Noir is sourced from the high north-east facing ridge of the Mount Barrow vineyard in the Mount Barker sub-region of the Great Southern grape growing region of Western Australia. The unique attributes of this site include an elevation of 380 metres, a planting density of 6,667 vines per hectare and shallow soils over rock with a high component of lateritic gravel. The VSP canopy has extensive shoot and green bunch thinning to minimise yields and ensure even and full ripeness.

Expert Reviews

"Has significantly more colour than Gibraltar Rock, the palate following suit; here there is red and black cherry, plum, spice and fine tannins all contributing to the overall flavour, mouth feel and length of the wine." Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013 Edition

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The hue of the wine is medium garnet with a slight purple hue.

Aroma

Aromas of red fruits and mushroom with scents of bouquet garni herbs and spices pervade the nose.

Palate

This medium bodied wine has pinot noir typicity, balance, eveness and length. The red cherry stone fruit sweetness has a savoury and herbal edge wrapped in a filigreed fine tannin structure of great finesse.

Cellaring

Whilst pretty and attractive in its youth, the wine will age with grace over the next 5 - 10 years.
