QTY

Moorilla’s location and growing conditions tend to produce a heavier, more robust Pinot noir, which we embrace, while still aiming for levity and balance in the finished wine. The 2015 Pinot noir is a fine expression of this, with a medium-red colour (and the faintest tinge of purple), and an elegant, vital tension between deeper, earthy notes (kola, chocolate, dark cherry) and an almost ethereal top end (red summer fruit in particular). Will improve even further with cellaring.

Technical Details

Due to the complexity of the Moorilla vineyard and its location we tend to have fruit that lends itself to a heavier and more robust style of Pinot noir. My aim is to work with this but to also try to bring levity to the finished wine. By picking over many different days and working with the variability in the vineyard we can make many wines and then work with that natural complexity in the winery to show a balance between fruit and oak derived aromas and flavours. By using stems in some fermentations, we can get great depth of tannin as well. The result is a wine displaying a great deal of complexity, power yet balance and the subtlety I look for. It will benefit from bottle maturation due to that higher percentage of whole bunch and carbonic maceration.

‘A delicious wine in a finer, more ethereal style.’ Huon Hooke, The Real Review , January 2019 (96 points)
