2012 Moorooduc Estate The Moorooduc McIntyre Mornington Peninsula Australia Pinot Noir

14.0% alc.. Established in 1982 by Richard and Jill McIntyre. A selection of the best clones in the home vineyard. Only made in years when the fruit is of high enough quality to represent the pinnacle of quality from Moorooduc Estate and Richard McIntyre’s skills. Assistant winemaker is Jeremy Maygar. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Appealing aromas of raspberry, plum, underbrush, spice and iron, becoming more effusive over time in the glass. Plenty of spicy and very ripe raspberry flavor picks up intensity over time. The fruit is wrapped in fine-grain tannins and backed by lively acidity. An earthy, iron flavor riff adds interest. Score: 91. Reviewed September 14, 2014 ARTICLE »

2010 Moorooduc Estate Victoria Mornington Peninsula Australia Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 900 cases, $31.99, screwcap. Importer H, Mercer Imports, Studio City, CA. A majority of fruit is from the McIntyre Vineyard. Grapes are de-stemmed and fermented in open top stainless steel vats with a pre- and post-fermentation maceration. Aged in 30% new French oak barrels for 12 to 14 months. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Black cherries and black raspberries are featured on the nose and palate in an intense, concentrated style. A hint of spice and a handle of oak accent the juicy fruit. The tannins are well-behaved, the acidity is balanced, and the wine sails along at the finish with plenty of fruit intensity. Score: 89. Reviewed September 5, 2013 ARTICLE »
