2016 Garden Pinot Noir Magnum

The Wine.
This 2016 Pinot Noir is a continuation of the whole bunch ferment story at Moorooduc Estate. The Garden Vineyard, across the hill from us, is owned by the McFall family and has been leased and run by Moorooduc Estate for over ten years. Fruit was hand picked and whole bunches placed directly into the fermenter. The stems were ripe and so added savouriness and structure.

Pale garnet in colour with a savoury and delicately perfumed nose. Meaty, herbal aromatics vie with lifted perfume, red cherry and tangy raspberry drops. Medium bodied on the palate, with sage, roast lamb and cranberry sauce flavours. The wine finishes fresh and bright, with good length and texture.

To drink young, open early and decant gently, this wine is, unsurprisingly, a great match to slow cooked lamb shoulder and roasted root vegetables.
