Pinot Noir is best known for the light- to medium-bodied reds of regions such as Burgundy and Central Otago (and, in Australia, Tasmania and Adelaide Hills). It also forms part of the classic Champagne blend and is a key contributor to many of the best sparklings. Pinot makes excellent rosés too, with the variety’s delicate charms perfectly suiting this lighter style.
Bright red fruits, with lifted cherry and raspberry. There's a spicy note here too, underpinned by a leafy/earthy shade. The palate is perfectly pitched, finding balance between acid and fruit, leading to a savoury finish. Highly Commended.

"Fragrant and then firm; flavoursome and then fine. This has the prettiness to catch your eye and the substance to make you want to stay. Macerated cherry-plum, mineral, wood spice and twigs. It’s not at all sweet but there’s more than enough fruit, and ample length. Time will be kind." Halliday Wine Companion

"Light, bright crimson-purple; a bright and fresh into to the suite of lovely Moorooduc Estate Pinots from this great vintage. It is delicate, but very detailed, cherry fruit to the fore, and lingering long through to the aftertaste with the same message." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20557
"A complex bouquet with cherry, plum and spice aromas full of promise delivered - and then some - on the long, intricately detailed palate. The varietal fruit remains centre stage, but savoury/spicy/foresty notes provide a continuous drum beat urging you to return again and again, glorying in the wine's complexity." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM19386
Spiced red fruits, dark cherry and gamey/meaty notes, supported by vanillin oak. The mid-weight expansive palate is awash with red fruits and undergrowth savouriness leading to a lingering finish. Excellent.
Item Code: ITM21763
A developing, mature nose of warm red fruits with earth and spice and a savoury note of black tea. The riper nose gives way to a more savoury palate, layered and complex with mushroom, dried herbs, and meaty tones amongst the fleshy fruits. Excellent.

"The Prince of Paringa, and off on a voyage of its own, finer and more savoury than any of the '16 Paringa Pinots. Red cherry, wild strawberry and spice form irresistible waves of flavour and texture. Elegance at a stratospheric level." Halliday Wine Companion
