2015 Moorooduc Estate McIntyre Pinot Noir

Mornington Peninsula

Our Price: $59.99 / bottle (RRP: $70.00 ) Case: 6 x 750ml

'The balance and length are such that you might think the wine has arrived at its destination, but it has years before all of its secondary fruits can be explored.'
97 Points - James Halliday

  • This single vineyard wine from Moorooduc's home vineyard in Derril Road is further evidence of what our fine vineyard site and mature vines can produce in a really good year. It includes some wine from interesting clones grafted onto our old Cabernet vines (planted in 1983).

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    A lovely vintage with great weather through the whole of the growing and ripening period, resulting in beautiful fruit, both white and red. The wines are well structured with delicious, crisp natural acidity, concentrated and balanced flavours and great length.

    Viticulturalist: Hugh Robinson
    Vineyards: 100% McIntyre vineyard

    Vinification - Hand harvesting, 100% destemmed 100% Wild yeast primary fermentation. 20 days total on skins. Natural malolactic fermentation in barrel. 17 months in French oak, 25 % new. No fining or filtration.

    TASTING NOTES

    An elegant, complex wine with a nose of red and black cherry fruit, rose petals, some herbal notes – wild sage and thyme – and soy savouriness. On the palate, the wine shows a core of juicy red and dark cherry fruit balanced by savoury, earthy notes and some soy and star anise spice. Firm acid and tannin combine on a savoury finish with great length.

    As a young wine, this is quite tight, but will open slowly with air. Match to roast duck with cherry sauce, or a slow braised lamb tagine.

  • REVIEWS

    'Seven clones (MV6, 115, 114, 777, 667, Abel and Pommard), hand-picked, destemmed, wild yeast open-fermented, 19-21 days on skins, matured in French oak (21% new). The bouquet is pure and perfumed, the palate pure silk with wild strawberry and red cherry fruits so intense they all but hid the complex fabric underneath. The balance and length are such that you might think the wine has arrived at its destination, but it has years before all of its secondary fruits can be explored.'
    97 Points - James Halliday

    'The power and the glory. In a nutshell. The spice, the fruit, the herbs, the flowers. The road of tannin. The snap of strawberries. This is a wine of balance, power and presence and that’s all you need to know..'
