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
