Spy Valley Pinot Noir Marlborough 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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. This Pinot Noir is a medium ruby colour. The nose is a potpourri of blueberry and violets with a typical Spy Valley layer of red fruit and liquorice. Fruit sweetness dominates a rich and complex palate. The structure is classically firm while remaining supple and approachable.
