2021 Estate Pinot Noir

The Wine.

Pale garnet in colour with a fragrant nose of red cherry, macerated strawberries, red and yellow rose petals and a touch of fresh thyme. Subtle spicy notes of cinnamon, cardamom and star anise vie for attention. On the palate the wine is silky and fresh with bright red cherry fruit and clove and cinnamon spice. A hint of black pepper, fresh rosemary, thyme and lavender play across the tongue and the red cherry fruit lingers long. Silky tannin structure and bright red fruit acid balance the flavours and the wine is delicious and harmonious.

Such a food friendly wine, drink now with a perfect steak and frites, chinese lacquered roast duck (or chicken), or a spicy lamb tagine. A lovely match to a mushroom and tofu stir fry dish as well. Will age and evolve beautifully for at least 10 years if you have the patience.

The 2021 Vintage.

The 2021 vintage at Moorooduc Estate was blessed with a mild, gentle season with rain events throughout, resulting in excellent fruit set, very little vine stress and a paced ripening of fruit. The mild conditions highlighted the different microclimates in the Moorooduc vineyards, with vintage beginning at the normal time (around the 22nd February), but with little pressure on the winery, as different sites and varieties ripened slowly, extending harvest out to late March across our vineyards in the north of the peninsula. The result: a calm harvest, a composed winery team and bright, vivid wines with beautiful natural acidity, and fine phenolics, weaving structure tightly together.
