2021 Robinson Pinot Noir
This wine is made from specially selected fruit from Hugh and Isabelle Robinson’s vineyard on the Old Moorooduc Road. Our single vineyard wines celebrate the individual character of certain special sites around the Moorooduc area. Mid ruby in colour with bright red cherry, strawberry and raspberry aromas. A touch of forest floor and bay leaf aromas add savouriness. On the palate the wine is concentrated, with tangy red cherry fruit, a touch of raspberry with firm silky tannin and crisp acidity on the long and luscious finish. Enjoy with grilled quail and mushrooms sautéed in garlic, olive oil and lemon thyme.

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.
