2015 Shoofly Pinot Noir
"When it comes to Pinot, Shoofly is convinced that some of the best are found with their neighbors in Victoria's Yarra and King Valleys. There, the cooler climate provides the perfect conditions for this sometimes fickle variety. The 2015 pinot Noir has aromas and flavors that mirror one another with light cherry, spicy floral notes and a touch of mint underlined by an earthy complexity. A silky texture envelops the palate while the balanced flavors welcoming linger on the finish.
Australians are serious about keeping their cool. They may look relaxed as they casually shoo away the incessantly buzzing flies, but the message is clear - nothing's going to get them down! They tend to take life's challenges in stride and simply get on with the job at hand. Like making wines with some oomph and stufﬁng, the sort you’d just as likely tuck into with your midweek pasta and take to a fancy dinner party on the weekend. That said, they take their winemaking pretty seriously, and it shows with Shoofly's collection of robust, full-of-flavor wines. Crafted from hand-selected vineyard sites that are rich in character and demonstrate true varietal pedigree, these are wines that show Australia at its best. " - Winery
