2016 Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir, Victoria, Australia
Bright garnet in colour with a nose redolent of juicy ripe red cherries, violets, earthy complexity and just a hint of licorice and spicy notes of clove and star anise. On the palate, more cherry fruit, with some savoury undertones and firm, velvety tannins. Juicy fruit balances perfectly with crunchy acid, firm tannins and a long, mouthwatering aftertaste. 13.5%
100% Wild yeast fermentation followed by 17 months in French oak (25% new). No fining and no filtration prior to bottling.
