Bsi Spy Valley Pinot Noir 2010
Named after the satellite listening post located over the road from the winery, Spy Valley is in the Waihopai Valley in Marlborough. Happily for us they appear more interested in fine wine than exploding cigars, and recent vintages have seen the winery's trophy cabinet filled to bursting. Like most Marlborough wineries, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc are Spy Valley specialties but winemaker Ant Mackenzie and his team also make a great range of aromatic whites including Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris. Their quality was recognised in March 2007 when the winery became the first ever producer to win four trophies in the same year at the Sydney Wine Show. The Rose is produced from Pinot Noir grapes that are hand harvested from the Marlborough vineyards. The aroma is reminiscent of coconut rough with fruit notes of plum, peach and strawberries. On the palate the wine is refreshing and bright - the balance is soft and refined with the promise of pleasant memories. Try chilled with Gammon accompanied by Pineapple Salsa.
Spy Valley Wines, one of Marlborough's leading family owned wine companies. Comprising ten varieties of grapes over 380 acres of estate vineyards, a modern fully integrated winemaking facility and a passion for excellence, Spy Valley consistently produces globally acclaimed award winning wines.
Vintage rating : 91R Predicted year : 2015 (No later than 2015) On the nose you find raspberry, cherry and plums with nice floral perfume. You also have a faint mocha smell. The fruits mentioned are easily tasted, but the oak adds a nice complexity (spices) and you have supple tannins.
