Moorooduc, Pinot Noir 2017
Moorooduc Estate is a small family run wine business with a philosphy of hands on care in the vineyard, minimal use of chemicals and minimal intervention in the winery to produce amazing food friendly, complex wines that express their own terroir with a gentle nod to Burgundy. 100% destemmed, wild yeast fermentation in barrel and 20 days with the skins to extract colour and texture. The wine is aged for 17 months in 100% French oak used, 25% of which is new.
On the nose there is bright red cherries, violets and an earthy complexity. On the palate more juicy cherry fruit off set by liquorice and savoury notes. It's smooth, juicy and velvety with the crunchy red fruit and well intergrated tannins finished with a long, mouthwatering aftertaste.
