Scorpo Pinot Noir 2014
Paul Scorpo has a 27-year background as a horticulturist/landscape architect, and has worked in major projects ranging from private gardens to golf courses in Australia, Europe and Asia. His family has a love of food, wine and gardens, all of which led to them buying a derelict apple and cherry orchard on gentle rolling hills between Port Phillip and Westernport Bay. Part of a ridge system which climbs up to Red Hill, it offers north and northeast-facing slopes on red-brown, clay loam soils. James Halliday
Ruby red, with a dynamic bouquet embracing the sweet earthiness of clove, kola nut and mushroom along with a strawberry-rhubarb fruitiness. A lush and deep expression of pinot noir, this beguiling wine possesses a lengthy, powerful finish with firm graphite tannin.
This is taking the slow road to maturity, due to small bunches and berries, ex rain-ravaged flowering. The depth and balance to its black cherry and foresty tannins assure rewards to those who are patient.
