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.

 

A classic Robinson Pinot Noir, with fruit purity, intensity and a silky long structured palate line. Bright ruby red with a lifted nose of tangy raspberry fruit and Turkish delight. On the palate there is more crunchy red fruit – concentrated raspberry and red cherry with firm, silky tannins and red berry acidity on the finish. Attractive savoury cedar notes balance the fruit vibrancy.

The 2019 Vintage

The growing season started well with good soil moisture and regular rain events throughout spring. While calm, mild weather in November resulted in good flowering and fruit set, the resultant yields were slightly lower than usual. Healthy canopies appreciated regular rainfall in early summer, then through January and into February, a much dryer warmer weather pattern evolved, that would lead us to harvest. Because of this, harvest started earlier than originally expected, keeping us on our toes. The harvest was compressed, putting further pressure on the winery to keep up with fruit reception, however the quality of the resultant wines made the long hours well worth the effort.
