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.
