The 2023 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, slurp-able tannins with just enough acidity to keep the finish rolling until the next glass is poured.

Winery & Vintage Info

Spring Vale Estate first began in 1986 when a small area of 0.8 hectares were 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 were planted. A further 7.9 hectares of Pinot Noir were then planted in 2013.

In June 2007, Spring Vale purchased a neighbouring farm, "Melrose". The purpose was to enable increased production of a lighter style red to be produced, with the first 'Melrose' Pinot Noir being the 2008 Vintage.

The Freycinet Coast is the driest part of the state, with an average annual rainfall of 550mm. Warm days and cool nights are a result of this climate and ideal for slow ripening and excellent flavour development. The soil at Spring Vale is mostly a fertile clay loam, with the subsoil varying from porous friable loam with rock to medium-heavy clay. Drainage is excellent throughout the vineyard and the pH of the soil is around 6.5.

Spring Vale Melrose Pinot Noir 2023 vintage would pair nicely with slow cooked shoulder of lamb, or crispy skinned Tasmania ocean trout.
