Moorooduc 'Mcintyre Vineyard' Pinot Noir Mornington Peninsula Victoria 2009
Pinot noir is destemmed and fermented on skins in open stainless steel vats, with a pre and post fermentation maceration. We plunge the cap by hand during the fermentation process and, after pressing, the new wine is transferred into oak barriques (30% new) for maturation and the malolactic conversion for 12-14 months before bottling.
Clear, medium dark crimson colour. Clean, youthful aromas of crushed red berries and dried cranberries, sprinkling of ground clove. A dry, med+ bodied wine with moderate acidity. This wine has a silky texture, buffered by a subtle load of grainy tannins which carry the prominant red currants and cherry flavours. Easy, long finish. 14% alc. Drink now – 2015. 89/100.
