Overview

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. Enjoy a bottle of the 2018 “Melrose” Pinot Noir with slow cooked shoulder of lamb or crispy skinned Tasmania ocean trout.

Winery Tasting Notes

The "Melrose" is bright, fresh, jubey, soft and stacked with appeal. Colour is classic dark cherry with good depth, but colour don't mean squat when it comes to Pinot. The perfume on this wine is sure to please, being a mix of luscious red berries (strawberries, raspberries) and hints of cola and earth. Quite a complex bouquet for a wine so young and uncomplicated. The fruit in this vintage was simply outstanding, and this wine shows the varietal integrity and drive that good vintages deliver. On the palate, there is a harmonious balance between integrated acid and fine, powdery tannins. The mid-palate has presence and weight and the finish is persistent and flavoursome.

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.
