Wine Entry : Scotchmans Hill Geelong Pinot Noir 2006 (Australia)

Purchased this wine at Melbourne Airport for 18.75 AUD for 500ml bottle. Seen it around in Singapore shops before too. Nice clear purple colour.

Smell : Summer raspberries with some woody oak spice.

Taste : refreshing fresh raspberry, plum mixed with the burnt wood vanilla aromas, but some-what single dimensional

After taste : firm confident tannins not common for pinot

Description at back of bottle : Scotchmans Hill was named by the Scottish immigrants who settled the Mount Bellarine area, 50 km south of Melbourne across Port Philip Bay, in the 1840s. The Sctochmans Hill ineyard and winery, family owned since its establishment in 1982, produces wine under the labels Scotchmans Hill, Swan Bay and the Hill.
