Spy Valley

Spy Valley 'Envoy' Pinot Noir 2010  14.5%
N: An intense bouquet of New World fruits including dark cherry, Raspberry and a little plum all laced with brown spice suggestions from barrel fermentation and ageing in oak. Moderate complexity, it youthful and very new-worldly
4.5 Stars

P: Dry and firm with youthful fine tannins (mostly fine from skin contact). The oak is not far behind adding complexity and hints of brown spices. A youthful plum list reminds me this wine is still in development and will age for a further 3 to 6 years if not more.
4.5 Stars
