Scotchmans Hill Bellarine Peninsula Pinot Noir (375ml)

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Scotchmans Hill tends to hang its hat on pinot noir, and this one has certainly seen a lot of care and attention, as well as some of the best French oak. Aromas of strawberries and red plums rise from the glass, along with hints of baked spices. The palate is medium-bodied and graceful, with a pleasant plummy middle, a touch of firmness to the tannins, and a decent toasted cedar finish. This will kick on for a few years, but would be equally nice with good with a mushroom risotto tonight.

Winemaker's Notes

Lifted and perfumed nose displaying violet notes and plum fruits. Complemented by beetroot, spice and earthy characters with cedar oak in the background.

Full complex and rich palate with fresh raspberry and dark fruit flavours and spice notes. There is a touch of sappiness and earthy tones throughout the mid palate, which is rounded out by cedar oak.

The wine has full ripe tannins and firm acid giving the wine great structure. Enjoy and cellar over the next 5 to 7 years.

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
An honest, pretty pinot whose lightly meaty, earthy bouquet of red berries, plums and restrained older oak precedes a smooth, lively palate of brighly lit cherry, plum and red berry flavours, dusty vanilla oak and pliant, fine tannins. It culminates in a lingering finish of sweet fruit and lively acidity.
