  • 26 Units in Stock
Quantity :

Bright, medium to full red/purple colour, with sweet strawberry, red cherry and lightly herbal aromas, subtle use of oak, and the palate is intense and very long, with beautifully judged tannins that are supple, fine-grained and provide good structure and backbone. Sweet fruit in the centre and a cleansing dry finish. Delicious and will be even better with food. (From Parkburn)

wine notes:

The bouquet has intense and complex aromatics featuring alternating bursts of blue fruits, woody herbs, sweet florals and black spice. The palate features lithe fruit and fine tannins that give great expansion, energy and freshness delivering a long flavourful finish. The finely balanced fruit and acid provides great precision and clarity to an elegant wine.

winemakers comments:

Viper Vineyard Pinot Noir is made from grapes grown in the Vipers vineyard in the Parkburn area on the western side of Lake Dunstan. The vineyard takes its name from the wildflower ”Vipers Bugloss” that covers the area. This vineyard sits on an undulating terrace above the valley floor. The soils are predominantly silt loam over schist gravel. The terrace enjoys moderate temperatures and a long growing season. Ripening tends to be late into the season as the daytime temperatures are cooling. The cooler ripening tends to produce spicy wines with dark fruit flavours and density on the palate. The Viper is always made from the Grandstand block in the vineyard, and the wine always stands out as uniquely in the cellar as it does in the bottle.
