Expert Reviews

Deep crimson; a dark and brooding combination of spice, game, star anise and seductive fruits all evident on the bouquet; the palate is almost luscious on entry, compelling and incredibly long, with ample silky tannins, linear acidity and true precision all present and accounted for. Rating 95 - Drink by 2018 - Ben Edwards, Wine Companion (FEB/2012)

I’ll quote direct from the Moorooduc Estate website re the winemaking etc involved: “A selected parcel of the best pinot noir clones 777 and MV6 from Robinson Vineyard is destemmed and fermented on skins in open stainless steel vats, with a pre and post fermentation maceration. We plunge the cap by hand during the fermentation process and, after pressing, the new wine is transferred into oak barriques (25-30% new) for maturation and the malolactic conversion for 12-14 months before bottling.”

It’s an elegant pinot noir with punchy length. Not quite a peacock’s tail but not far from it. Dark cherries with a lighter, redder, strawberried lift. Forest floor. Saucy soy. Spicy, stemmy tannin but simultaneously silken. The flavours are all crushed and autumnal through the finish – pleasingly so. Needs a few years to show its best, but a very strong release. Rating 94 - 2016 - 2021 Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front (DEC/2012)
