94 POINTS BEST OF THE BEST WINERY & 5 RED STAR RATING James Halliday ‘s 2011 Aust Wine Companion.
Strong clear colour. good expression of pinot varietal character from start to finish. with plum. spice and a touch of black cherry characters. very good mouthfeel and balance. Rating 94. James Halliday.
Crafted by renowned Geelong pinot producer. which is very burgundian in style. 100% Estate grown fruit (low yielding 1.5 tonnes per acre) from vines up to 30 years old ( Clones MV6. 114 Burgundy. 115 Burgundy & D5V12). A complex aroma of cherry and plum characters with a hint of beetroot and earth. Lively varietal characters of cherry and spice make way to beetroot and cherry flavours together with well balanced spicy oak. sweet leather and a touch of stalk throughout the mid palate. Scotchmans Hill has a lovely balance of fine tannins and fresh acidity which complement the concentrated fruit flavours. Well structured with a long and flavorsome finish. displays all the character of the finest Pinot Noir. Prime drinking here after a couple of years bottle age.
