Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma & Palate

Vibrant strawberry jam and raspberry jelly nose on an earthy background. Splash of Pinot Meunier adds some interest as a subtle indigenous yeast character. A juicy, soft, silky palate seals the deal in this early drinking, well priced Pinot.

Food Match

Match with crispy skinned ocean trout or slow roasted lamb shoulder.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Spring Vale is situated at Cranbrook, north of Swansea on Tasmania's Freycinet Coast. The Freycinet Coast could otherwise be described as the mid East Coast, and Spring Vale is about in the middle of that.Continuing in the tradition of hard work and innovation established by William Lyne in 1826, Rodney and Lyn Lyne have planted 6.6 hectares of wine grapes at Spring Vale, principally Pinot Noir. The vineyard began in 1986, when a small area of two acres was planted to Pinot Noir. Further plantings were made in the following years: firstly, more Pinot Noir, then Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer, followed by Pinot Gris in 1996. In 2000, more Pinot Noir and a splash of Pinot Meunier was planted.In June 2007, Spring Vale purchased a neighbouring farm, "Melrose". The purpose of this purchase was to enable decent amounts of a lighter red to be produced, with the first "Melrose" Pinot Noir being the 2008 Vintage.
