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 Pinot Noir is made from exceptional grapes grown in the Grandstand Block of the Viper Vineyard in the Parkburn area, located on the western side of Lake Dunstan. The vineyard takes it 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 sandy loam over red clay cemented schist gravel and the terrace enjoys moderate temperatures and a long growing season. Ripening here tends to be late into the season as the daytime temperatures are cooling. The cooler ripening produces spicy wines with dark fruit flavours and density on the palate this creates a wine which always stands out as uniquely in the cellar as it does in the bottle.
