MAX ALLEN -THE FINANCIAL REVIEW May 10, 2017
2015 Scorpo Estate Bestia Pinot Grigio Tradizionale (Mornington Peninsula, Victoria)
As the name suggests, fully ripe pinot gris/grigio grapes are a dusky purple grey in colour, so if you ferment the juice with the skins (as you would a red variety), you can end up, as here, with a wonderful copper-hued wine.  This has an entrancing perfume of hedgerow flowers and berries, with a gorgeous, rich texture on the lounge.  Think of it as a full bodied dry rose. And try it with lentil soup. $45

2015 Scorpo Aubaine Chardonnay

An archetype of modern Australian chardonnay, in all its rip-roaring deliciousness.

It flows so well. It feels so soft. It has backbone but it coats it in velvet. White peach, green apple, fresh/juicy pears, all infused with spicy/cedary oak. It draws you in, keeps you there, and then sets you sailing on the finish.

94 points.

2014 Scorpo Pinot Noir

Tasted this early last year – loved it – and have been meaning to review it here. It looks every bit as lovely a year on.

It’s meaty and substantial but it has class written all over it. Foresty red/black cherries, mineral, a spread of spice and smoky, polished, seductive oak. It feels complete, it feels complex, it feels delicious. Not a bad combination. Length is exemplary too.

95 points.
