Moorilla Estate Muse Pinot Noir

Variety: Pinot Noir
Region: Derwent Valley , Tasmania
Vintage: 2016

The Muse Series Pinot Noir is slightly richer than the norm, made with estate-grown fruit from our original Moorilla vineyard (sharing the same peninsula as Mona). Colour is medium-full with brick and faint purple tints, the bouquet a feast of sweet black cherry and sous bois, with some spicy oak and subtle hints of whole-bunch fermentation. Planted from cuttings the combination of these Pinot vines and site gives this wine a unique character. Shallow soils sitting on sandstone have kept yields low, while the sea breeze slows flavour development. Picked at the height of perfumed floral flavours, this vintage has resulted in fine tannins and colours. Aromas of alpine berries, summer cherries, wild violets and spice meld with French oak. The palate is classical. A touch of stalk and oak puncheon tannin gathered through fermentation and maturation complement the natural finesse of the early harvest. This long wine shows autumn cranberries, accompanied by minerals and a taut acidity. Rewarding with cellaring.

Awards:

‘A superb wine, and a fine follow-up to the excellent 2015 … the palate is full and rich, concentrated and powerful, the finish very long-lasting. The sweet, rich core of ripe fruit gives it succulence. A delicious wine! 96 points.’ Huon Hooke
