Scotchman’s Hill Norfolk Vineyard Pinot Noir 2007, Bellarine Peninsula, VIC

RRP$55. Fruit for this wine is hand-picked off 23-year old vines at Scotchman’s Hill. A portion of fruit is fermented with 25% whole bunch, while another is de-stemmed and spent 20 days macerating on skins. The blended wine is racked into new to 2-year old Troncias barriques for 16 months maturation. A masculine wine of dark ruby colour with a garnet rim. Attractive perfume of earthy plum, crushed red berries and savoury oak spice. A med+ bodied wine, high level of acidity with firm tannins. A precise structure, well-weighted, makes for enjoyable drinking. Drink now – 2020. 93/100.
