When it comes to Pinot, Shoofly is convinced the best wines are coming from their eastern neighbors in the Yarra Valley. It's easy to see why - this wine shows the purity of fruit that is
so easily lost with this fickle variety. The aromas and flavors mirror one another with light cherry, spicy floral notes and hints of vanilla. The silky texture envelops the palate while the balanced flavors welcomingly linger on the finish.
Australian Wine CompanionExcellent, deep and clear, red-purple; the cherry/spice aromas of the bouquet are followed by a strongly structured palate, its black cherry and plum fruit supported by savoury/foresty tannin-derived nuances. Amazing price - will repay cellaring if you can keep your hands off it.
International Wine CellarBright red. Fresh red berries, rose and allspice on the perfumed nose and in the mouth. Lithe and precise, with appealing sweetness that carries through the finish. Quite sexy, with upfront appeal but the balance to reward at least another three years or so of patience. This suave wine represents one of the best pinot values I've seen from anywhere in some time.
