With all the wines we offer having passed an extremely tough Tasting Panel, it’s never a surprise to see them recognised by Australia’s premier critic. But it’s always nice nonetheless. Each of these featured drops has earned a minimum of 90 points from James Halliday.
"Light in colour but there’s plenty going on. It’s a meaty, spicy pinot. Cherries are the backdrop, or the conduit, with woody spices flying hither and thither. Tangy finish, complete with mint and anise notes. It’s a most enjoyable wine to drink, it has to be said." Campbell Mattinson

"Takes a little time to wind up and get into gear, but having done so offers a very complex bouquet of plums and baker's spices, the palate gaining length and purpose each time I came back to it, although the flavour spectrum didn't crumble." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20293
"Wild yeast open-fermented with 20% whole bunches, matured for 7 months in French oak (10% new), gravity bottled. Very good colour; the intensity of the aromas and flavours unfolding with the first sip stop you in your tracks. The whole bunch component is evident, but not dominant, simply one of many factors in shaping the flavour and texture of this lovely wine." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: OLG317324
Delicacy and structure combined in the way only a good Pinot can. Intoxicating cherry and smoked meat aromas lead to cranberry tartness on the palate and plentiful fine tannins.
Item Code: ITM6836
Perfumed bouquet of red and dark fruits, spice and earthy characters continue on the palate. Fine tannins create a well-structured wine of complexity and persistence. An elegant and expressive Pinot.
Item Code: ITM6087
"[it's] perfumed and has more sweetness to its fruit than many of its vintage brethren. You could almost drink this young and get the full experience though it will benefit greatly given time to soften and evolve. Forest berries, spice, cool garden herbs, mineral and a kiss of sweet/cedary/smoky oak. The fruit feels silken, the tannin feels gruff, but they’re not at odds, they’re managing to get along. It’s going places, this pinot noir." Campbell Mattinson

"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.
Item Code: ITM21764
"Hand-picked, whole berries and whole bunches open-fermented with gentle plunging. A wine that explains the love at fist sight when the Tolpuddle partners saw the vineyard. It comes flying through the weather of the vintage that trapped others with a highly perfumed red flower bouquet and into a layered palate reflecting the whole bunch/whole berry fermentation, spicy, savoury, foresty notes form a laurel wreath on the fruit, the oak integrated." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: OLG314262
Feminine, seductive and moreish sums up this wine. Perfumed notes of red fruits continue onto the palate and beautifully intertwine with good acidity and oak characters creating a well-balanced and seamless wine.
Item Code: ITM17214
A powerful Pinot Noir of masculinity, structure and savoury flavours. A well-balanced display of red and black fruits with bold spice, meaty and mineral nuances. Firm yet delicate with a long-textural finish, this is a fresh and edgy Pinot Noir with bucketloads of character.
Item Code: ITM17213
"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
