Moorooduc Pinot Noir, Mornington Peninsula, Australia
Deep garnet in colour with lifted red and black cherry, generous aromas of wild sage, thyme and bay leaf with mushroom and soy sauce savouriness. On the palate, intense, velvety tannins balance dark cherry fruit, dark chocolate and rich earthy savoury notes.
Established in 1982 by Richard and Jill McIntyre, Moorooduc Estate is a small, family run wine business that has developed an enviable reputation for complex and food friendly wines. Their philosophy in everything is to make the most of top quality ingredients. Intensive, hands-on care in the vineyard, with minimal use of chemicals, produces the best possible fruit for our wines. Wild yeast ferments and minimal intervention winemaking, with a nod to traditional Burgundian techniques, allow our wines to express their site specificity, or terroir.
