Moonlight Race 2015 Pinot Noir

$65.00 - $385.00

The name Moonlight Race comes from a waterway which pases through the Burn Cottage property. These water channels were created during early European settlement to bring water down from the mountains. The Moonlight Race ebbs and flows throughout the seasons, echoing the cyclical waxing and waning of the moon.

This is a blend of fruit from three vineyards - 35% from each of the Burn Cottage and Northburn vineyards, and the remaining 30% from the Mark II site. The fruit, of which 22% went in as whole clusters, spent an average of 19 days in the fermenter, followed by maturation in French oak (25% new) from Mercurey and Damy cooperages.
Mike Bennie 94 points: 'Wonderful perfume. Smells cherry-like, savoury, faint dusty spice, touch of clove, earthiness, undergrowth. Really a whole lot going on. Texture is firm, tight, subtle and cool in fruit flavours, long. Long. It’s elegant yet shows off savouriness, tannins are shapely and succulent. It’s restrained, needs time, but offers so much for serious pinot lovers. Yep.' The Wine Front

Pinot Shop is located in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia at 135 Paterson Street down at the river end near Cataract Gorge, Stillwater Restaurant and The Mill Providore. We specialise in the best of premium pinot noir as grown so beautifully in the cool climes of Tasmania, New Zealand and southern parts of the big Australian continent. Our love for pinot extends to its sibling styles pinot gris and grigio and fizzy cousins sparkling wine and Champagne, even when they don’t contain pinot noir. That’s not to say we’ve become too exclusive - we also stock an interesting range of delicious wines for those (rare) times when you’re not drinking pinot…
