Somewhere near the Seaview end of McLaren Vale's Chapel Hill Road, a perfunctory passerine perched her pincers astride a pair of power poles and saw herself alit. Down she went amongst the dry grown branches of an old Grenache vineyard, setting the valuable veterans ablaze. The scorched site eventually came to the attention of a winemaking trio, the Messrs Leske, Tynan & Cooke, Masters of Wine and a venerable vintner, all driven by a consuming passion to make greater Grenache. Thistledown vintage very small amounts of the most extraordinary Grenache. Beautifully detailed and conspicuously elegant, their floral bouquets and graceful finish emulate the aromatic..

Spring Vale Melrose Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier East Coast Tasmania

Eight different clones are individually husbanded to provide a cornucoppia of flavour and tannin profiles. Melrose has been fashioned to a lighter styling, similar to a well structured Beaujolais Grand Cru, with delicacy and sweet fruit being the key features. An engaging Pinot wine exuding freshly picked strawberry and raspberry fragrances, enhanced by a subtle treatment of fine French oak.

The Lynne family were amongst the first settlers in Van Diemen's Land. Almost two centuries later, Rodney and Lyn Lyne planted vines on a property called Melrose with the intention of producing world class Pinot Noir. Parcels are inoculated as berries are dispersed through the crusher destemmer, for rapid onset, minimizing skin contacts and avoiding excessive tannin extraction for a lighter style of Pinot Noir. Lactic acid bacteria strains thrive in the warm ferments, enabling early completion of malolactic and softer mouthfeel. Batches are drained after a week and the skins lightly pressed, assembled and racked, sulphured, lightly fined and crossflow filtered.
Medium garnet colour. The nose is packed with red berries and confectionery, an earthy undertone with hints of mushroom and funk due to Pinot Meunier. A juicy, soft, silky palate seals the deal in this early drinking, delicately structured, light to medium bodied Pinot Noir with a plump, juicy middle palate and soft, lingering finish, bright, uncomplicated and delightfully youthful.
