Bob recently tasted and reviewed our new release Spy Valley Southern Valley's Pinot Noir 2015, awarding it 90 Points / 4 Stars
“Rich, flavoursome pinot noir with appealing plum, dark cherry and dark berry flavours supported by subtle chocolate and spicy oak. An accessible wine with good weight and a smooth texture."
This wine pairs perfectly with duck breast and pumpkin mash, or any game bird, lamb or venison alongside a roaring fire.
