Moorilla Praxis Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2012 Vintage) says
Praxis is Moorilla’s modern, fruit-focused, early drinking range and its recently released pinot noir meets the brief precisely. It’s elegant and pretty, with a core of tangy red cherries, ripe strawberries and rose petal fragrance. A finely textured tannin structure is seamlessly integrated, making it ready to go right away.

This Praxis boasts some handy weight and texture given the difficult vintage, and also shows the improved poise and harmony of the prior 2010 release. There s a bright punchy set of red fruit aromas, musky oak, with gentle toasted spice and a leafy, sappy side. The palate delivers mid-weight presence and nice, smooth shape, tannins are ripe yet fine, quite fresh and juicy, and some meaty flavours linger through the finish. Bright with a little complexity and certainly one to drink young and fresh.

This is a step in the right direction for the Moorilla pinots, showing there's a progression towards brighter pinot noir that still packs compelling concentration and flavour. A wealth of ripe, brambly cherry and plum fruit here, wild red fruits and hints of dried leaves and foresty complexity - full of promise. The palate's a juicy and flavoursome mouthful of supple yet sturdy pinot, lithe tannins, dark, juicy cherry-fruit flavours, bright acid and a tangy cherry-pip finish. Lovely wine.

Brilliantly clear crimson; a pure expression of the variety, with bell-clear plummy fruit; good line and length.

The alcohol verifies some deep ripeness here, showing plenty of dark cherry, plum and mulberry fruits, some cedary toasty oak and nutty elements too - there's an earthy depth. The palate is little one-dimensional, and the alcohol (14.7%) smooths it out and fills in tannin detail. A bigger wine, simpler - plenty of flavour here.

Has a quite silky, sappy texture; attractive red fruits and spices; very good thrust and length.
