Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir 2017

Hand harvested, 100% de-stemmed to show off the purity & class of the fruit. 100% wild yeast ferment for complexity the 20 days on skins to develop extra weight & texture. Followed by a natural malolactic ferment in barrel then 100% French oak maturation adding delicious spice & density. No fining or filtering, wishing to keep all of the goodness in the wine, in a natural fashion which allows for a very fine and true expression of beautiful Pinot Noir.

Huon Hookes Wines of the week July 1st 2020

This is the ‘regular’ Moorooduc pinot but it’s outstanding value. (There are three dearer single-vineyard wines). It’s blended from several vineyards in the Moorooduc locality.

Deep colour, the bouquet rich and ripe with dark-chocolate, dark berry, floral and vanilla aromas with a foresty high-note. Velvet-textured, dense, concentrated and fleshy, the aftertaste long-lasting. The mouth-feel is a feature. An impressive wine. (Screwcap)

Score: 95 ★★★★★

Hughes & Hughes Pinot Noir 2019

This is fruit from the Coal River and Derwent Valleys fermented in small batches in a bunch of different ways. Some whole bunch, some whole berry, lots of experimenting from winemaker Jonathan Hughes to see what works, then finally a blend of the best parts. Its a lovey wine bursting with red berry fruits, plenty of energy throughout, just delicious!

Mike Bennie - The Wine Front - 91 Points - Sees 15% whole bunch. Produced from Coal River Valley and friends.

Peppery, herbal notes, sour cherry and light sarsaparilla all dusted with white pepper. Juicy and crisp in the palate, more of the sour cherry, some kirsch, lots more spice to taste and a strong smoky finish, slightly acrid. Good length, easy drinking.

Apogee Pinot Noir 2019

The Apogee Pinot Noir 2019 is a Côte de Beaune Burgundy in style, meaning tannin profile is not strong but aromatics are pronounced: a perfume of fruit pastilles –plum, cherry and blueberry preserve. Mid-colour with bright ruby hue, sweet fruit on mid-palate gives way to good acidity on finish highly aromatic red berry summer pudding, mid-bodied the soft, fleshy texture stands out. The Apogee site confers its floral/fruit characteristic (rose, raspberry and lavender) plus some emerging gamey characters. Drink 2020-2028. Food match- roast chicken, Brillant-Savarin soft ripened cheese. - Andrew Pirie.

Huon Hooke - 93/100 - May 2020

Very bright, fresh medium- depth red/purple colour, with a very bright, pristine fruity aroma evoking fresh cherry, with sidelights of strawberry, raspberry and balsamic herbs, and a subtle overlay of smoked charcuterie. It's light-bodied and lightly-structured, tannins are very subtle and fine, oak all but invisible. It's bursting with vitality and low on extract. Undeniably cold - climate, it reminds me of one of the better pinots from Champagne or even Switzerland.

First Foot Forward Pinot Noir Yarra Valley 2019

The 2019 Pinot Noir is from a vineyard in Coldstream (Yarra Valley Floor). This sub-region is known for a more savoury style of Pinot but with careful vine canopy management and good timing of the picking at harvest, the red cherry fruit can be brought to the fore. A long and gentle post ferment maceration brings the fine tannins to support this fruit. Wild yeasts did the fermenting before a long and gentle soak on skins to build the fine tannin structure that supports the red cherry fruit. A lick of new oak frames the wine and brings some wonderful complexity all round.

Campbell Mattinson - October 2020

Excellent release!

It pulls you this way and that but this is both a complex offering and a good one. Sweet cherry-plum flavours meet undergrowth, leafy spice, red currant and brick dust. Tannin is fine and well - threaded and it finishes with a satisfying kick-on of flavour. Its very good for both quality and value.

 

BK Wines Skin n Bones Pinot Noir 2020

Skin-n-Bones Pinot Noir 2020
Did you know that humans can discriminate more than one trillion different scents? It's true! But what we wanted to know when tasting this vintage of Skin-n-Bones Pinot Noir is just how many you can detect at any one time. There is so much detail in this wine - layer upon layer of classic, Burgundian Pinot Noir aromas which are very much like the middle of the mulch pile where life is earthy, deep, humic, sweet, savory, spicy, lavender, aniseed-y. There truly is a scent for everyone. Refreshing, finessed and elegant on the palate with negroni bitter notes. Four Pinot Noir clones (predominantly MV6), 30 days on skins, 10% new French oak for 10 months - BK

Hatherleigh Pinot Noir 2015 (95JH)

95 Points, James Halliday 2020 Wine Companion, "Hatherleigh Pinot Noir 2015 (14%, screwcap). Some development of the mid garnet hue. A flicker and cherries and pips, wood char and spice as it heads into more savoury territory. Medium bodied yet decisive. Grippy Tannins, somewhat terse, but some sweet fruit coming through. It ends up refreshing and convincing.
