Moorooduc Estate McIntyre Vineyard Pinot Noir 2008

The Moorooduc team are maestros of Pinot in the Mornington Peninsula and this little slinky number is silky and fine after careful nurturing – low yield vines, hand picked, wild yeasts and finally no filtering in keeping with the McIntyre’s minimal intervention policy.  The result is a wine that is flagrant with its firm cherry and red fruits, joined by some thyme and savoury earth characters on the palate.  The finish is long and smooth.  A wine that is finely integrated for drinking now.

Date: 5th February 2010   Price: $36    Value: $$$    Drink: Now – 5 years
