2013 Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir

The Wine.

Ruby red in colour, this wine has a bright nose of red and black cherries, black raspberries, violet, lilies and hints of sandalwood spice.
More savoury on the palate, with crunchy cherry fruit and darkly exotic spicy notes, reminiscent of church incense. Savoury, earthy, granitic notes linger and on the finish, a touch of the combination of sweet fruit and refreshing bitterness of sucking the last fruit off a cherry pip. Delicious.

This wine cries out for something rich and meaty – duck liver pate, confit duck legs, rillettes and sour dough toast.
The 2013 Vintage.

Another lovely vintage, a little warmer and drier than 2012, resulting in more flamboyant, darker fruited reds and slightly richer whites that in the previous year.

The defining feature of this vintage was a period of very warm weather over three weeks leading up to vintage. The ripeness of fruit and phenolics in the wines are a result of this pre-vintage weather. A vintage of perfume and juicy fruit, with great length, structure and depth in the wines.
