12 Bottles - Moorooduc 'The McIntyre' Pinot Noir 2016
This single vineyard wine from Moorooduc's home vineyard in Derril Road is further evidence of what this fine vineyard with mature vines can produce in a really good year.
Deep garnet in colour with lifted red and black cherry, generous aromas of wild sage, thyme and bay leaf with mushroom and soy sauce savouriness. On the palate, intense, velvety tannins balance dark cherry fruit, dark chocolate and rich earthy savoury notes. The finish is long and structured, and the wine cries out for pan seared duck breast with a bitter cherry sauce.
