Complex wine showing red currants, black cherries laced with a funky barrel notes of smoke and cedar. Gloriously soft and supple on the palate, producing a long length that is enhanced by some fine ‘sticky’ tannins. Medium bodied for a Pinot. Hints of herbs and redcurrants and cherries on flavour front. Overall a great Pinot showing a lot of elegance.
Moorooduc Estate McIntyre Pinot Noir 2019, Mornington Peninsula, Vic
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
