2017 Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir (375ml half bottle)

2017 Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir (375ml half bottle)


The Wine.

Deep garnet colour with a nose that is complex, darkly perfumed and tightly wound. Deep dark cherry fruit, dark violet perfume with exotic incense-like notes. On the palate, black cherry and raspberry, with pomegranate syrup, star anise and firm, fine grained velvety tannins. Long, concentrated and complex. Still very youthful, will open up and soften with time.


A great match to slow cooked duck marylands with beetroot and potato mash.

The 2017 Vintage
The 2017 vintage began with some early difficulties but turned out well, producing small quantities of high quality wine. High wind and rain during flowering resulted in some uneven fruit set and smaller crops than preferred, but mild, even conditions after that produced beautiful slow ripening of small bunches with lovely flavours, concentration and firm acidity in the finished wines.
