2017 Robinson Pinot Noir

2017 Robinson Pinot Noir


The Wine.

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, refreshing aromas of tangy sour red cherries and pomegranate, rhubarb, red rose petals and violets.
On the palate red cherries and wild raspberries flood the tongue.  Tangy acidity, silky, yet firm tannins and a long, pure finish.



The 2017 Vintage.

Bright garnet colour, with refreshing aromas of tangy sour red cherries and pomegranate.  There is a touch of rhubarb and the classic Robinson floral notes expressed here as red rose petals and woodland violets.
On the palate the fruit is red and bright, with cherries and wild raspberries flooding the tongue.  Tangy raspberry acidity plays well with the silky, yet firm tannins and the finish is long and pure.
A delicious match to pine mushroom risotto and confit duck leg.  Will cellar well and develop more savoury mushroom notes for at least 10 years.
