Moorooduc Estate Robinson Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

$64.00

Winery notes: “This wine is made from specially selected fruit from Hugh and Isabelle Robinson’s vineyard on the Old Moorooduc Road. Our single vineyard Estate wines celebrate the individual character of certain special sites around the Moorooduc area. Bright garnet in colour, this wine has delightfully pure fruited red cherry aromas, a touch of dark cocoa and a savoury sweet note of deliciously cured pork/jamon. On the palate, firm tannins and tangy cherry and pomegranate fruit are elegantly balanced with the acid. Less floral than previous Robinson pinots, but with a touch more savoury complexity, and a lovely silky and long finish. Enjoy with grilled spatchcocked quails in a ginger and soy marinade.”

JAMES’ HALLIDAY’S REVIEW: Richard McIntyre has taken Moorooduc Estate to new heights, having completely mastered the difficult art of gaining maximum results from wild yeast fermentation. Starting with the 2010 vintage, there was a complete revamp of grape sources, and hence changes to the tiered structure of the releases. These changes were driven by the simple fact that the estate vineyards had no possibility of providing the 5000-6000 dozen bottles of wine sold each year. The entry point wines under the Devil Bend Creek label remain, as before, principally sourced from the Osborn Vineyard. The mid-priced Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are no longer single-estate vineyard wines, and are now simply labelled by vintage and variety. Next come the Robinson Vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, elevated to reserve wine status, priced a little below the ultimate ?Ducs’ (The Moorooduc McIntyre).
