Expert Reviews

Very spiffy chardonnay from Mornington Peninsula icon Moorooduc Estate.

Lovely combination of flavours here. Pears, sweet and savoury. Nectarines. Oak spice. A slip of lactose. Maybe even some brine. Green-ish acids through the finish, but in a pleasing way. Super from go to whoa. Rating 94 - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front(DEC/2012)

A tightly wound and pure-fruited wine, showing pear and nectarine, lots of seductive spices and a lick of toasty oak; the palate is sweet-fruited and generous, silky and layered, with a fine backbone of acidity and a long, savoury and mealy conclusion. Rating 94 - Drink by 2016 - Ben Edwards, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Pale golden in colour

Aroma

This wine shows tangy lemon pith and white floral aromatics with some flinty, chalky notes.

Linear and bright on the palate, with minerally notes, green apple and lemon barley flavours. The wine finishes long with fresh crisp acidity.

A terrific food wine and very versatile– try with pan-fried garfish and garlic roasted potatoes.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Established in 1981 by Richard and Jill McIntyre, Moorooduc Estate is a small, family-run wine business that has developed an enviable reputation for complex and food friendly wines.

Their philosophy in everything they do is to make the most of top quality ingredients. Intensive, hands-on care in the vineyard, with minimal use of chemicals, produces the best possible fruit for their wines. Wild yeast ferments and minimal intervention winemaking, with a nod to traditional Burgundian techniques, allow their wines to express their site specificity, or terroir.

In 2010 Richard and Jill's daughter Kate McIntyre attained a title of Master of Wine.
