Our flagship chardonnay. The Moorooduc Chardonnay is a single vineyard wine, made from the best fruit from our original McIntyre Vineyard. The vines were planted in 1983, and are 11 years older than our next oldest chardonnay vines. The fruit is hand picked and whole-bunch pressed and the juice is transferred to barrel, without settling, for fermentation. All barrels are French oak, 25% new and the remainder 2-3 years old. A spontanious malolactic conversion often occurs. The wine is left in barrel, with occasional lees stirring for 8-10 months before bottling.

The extra vine age results in more structure, depth, complexity of flavour and more minerality in the resulting wine.

Expert Reviews

Richard McIntyre has pulled out the funky stick with this wine and held nothing back; the bouquet is full of ripe hedonistic stone fruit aromas, carried along by a wind of savoury charcuterie and spice; the palate is unctuous, deep and long, with generosity and a backbone of grip the central theme. Rating 95 - Drink by 2017 - Ben Edwards, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2012)

Grown on the oldest vines on the McIntyre Vineyard at Moorooduc. No shrinking violet. All wild yeast.

A sumptuous feast. Sweet yellow stone-fruits and grapefruit, toasty oak and matchsticky funk. Full box and dice, but not over the top. Glycerol. Perhaps a touch alcohol warm but nothing serious. Tight through the finish but I wouldn’t imagine it will take too long to reach its peak. Rating 92 - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front (DEC/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

A wine of wonderful depth, complexity and length. Delightfully glycerous mouth feel and subtle, layers of aromas and flavours - a very classy wine.

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.
