Sourced almost entirely off an exciting new vineyard on Tasmania's beatified east coast, a small parcel of wild fermented Pinot Meunier is included for elegance and complexity. 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. Alcohol 13.8%
TASTING NOTES
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.

About Spring Vale Winery
Spring Vale is situated at Cranbrook, north of Swansea on near the Freycinet Peninsula, otherwise described as the mid East Coast, and Spring Vale is somewhere in the middle of that
In October of 1826, William Lyne, his wife and five children arrived in Van Diemen's Land (now known as Tasmania.) Among the first of settlers, the Lynes gave names to features of importance to them, such as Christmas Point, at which they arrived on Christmas Day, immediately prior to taking up their land grant. Always a sociable family, they celebrated with their fellow settlers as soon as their first dwelling, a sod hut, was complete. Early life in the area held its fair share of challenges, which the Lynes and other pioneering families rose to meet. Further setting the scene for the continuing fascination with the East Coast of Tasmania was the early artist and author Louisa Meredith, herself the first resident of Spring Vale. From 1875, the Spring Vale property has been in the hands of the Lyne family, who have pursued farming ventures in this beautiful area on the East Coast of Tasmania. Spring Vale»
