About

The Scorpo philosophy focuses primarily on attention to detail in the vineyard, trusting the old axiom that great fruit makes great wine. "The family wants to leave this site in better condition than they found it. Healthy soil, land and vineyards will be the Scorpo Wines legacy." Owner, viticulturist, and winemaker Paul Scorpo takes full advantage of his impressive site when making the Noirien Pinot Noir. It's a fine boned, beautifully constructed wine which offers pleasure now or with some time in the cellar. James Halliday said of the 2015 vintage, "It feels skilful. It tastes terrific." in his 95 point review which summarises it perfectly. Pinot Noir fans will find plenty of pleasure here. The Mornington Peninsula is one of the go-to regions for quality Pinot and this wine is a great example of why.

What it Tastes Like

"Good release this. Shies away from fruitiness and settles into earth, briar, undergrowth and even a whiff of chookshed before revealing red and black berry fruits. The palate is light, delicate, firm with ribs of tannin, finishes mouthwatering and tight. Technoboobs will love saying this wine is ‘reductive’, but that just means you need more time with it open or in glass. It’s a firm, chewy, light red wine of pinot prettiness underlying. Good." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
