97 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
This wine is made from specially selected fruit from Hugh and Isabelle Robinson’s vineyard on the Old Moorooduc Road. It is the fourth commercial release of our ‘single vineyard’ Estate wines that celebrate the individual character of certain special sites around the Moorooduc area.
Bright, clear garnet colour, with floral notes – roses and violets – strawberries and red cherries on the nose. Tangy, red cherry and raspberry fruit on the palate – long and fresh and succulent, with mouth wateringly delicious, crunchy red fruit acid. This wine is all about purity and a silky texture.
“Three clones (MV6, 777 and 667), hand-picked, destemmed, wild yeast open-fermented, 19-21 days on skins, matured in French oak (20% new). 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.” – 97 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
