#WW Scratch 2011 SLH Pinot Noir,

This weeks #WW is not your average wine to drink midweek at the dinner table. It is a big step up. The selection is from Scratch Wines in Soledad California. 2011 Scratch Pinot Noir. 14.2% alc., pH 3.71, TA 0.65, 35 cases, $45. Pommard 4 and 667 clones. 50% whole cluster.

A downright lovely Pinot Noir, that uses grapes from the KW Ranch Vineyard and dishes out medium-bodied notes of raspberry, cherry and darker style fruit, a little pepper and mineral to go with a smooth, polished and beautifully textured profile on the palate. It is balanced in acids and tannins, with a nice long finish and has that hard to define je ne sais quoi. This is an exciting inaugural Pinot Noir from Sabrine Rodems, and we are looking forward to the next release from Scratch Wines.

Totally enjoyed this wine wine oven baked lamb chops with asparagus and roasted potatoes. Giving this wine a 7-8 and ***

Enjoy your weekly wine or winning wine or wine Wednesday or just simply the #WW.

Happy Wine Adventures,
Kiwi & Koala
