Overview

The 2011 vintage proved remarkably successful at Moorooduc Estate, particularly for white wines, despite the very difficult growing conditions experienced throughout that season. The drought had broken to such an extent that our dam, near empty 12 months prior was now full to overflowing. Instead of lack of water, too much water and unheard of humidity was the problem. Through extra care in the vineyard and stringent fruit selection we triumphed over the difficult conditions. One unusual, positive aspect of this vintage was that phenolic and flavour ripeness happened at lower sugar levels than normal.

Winery Tasting Notes

The red wines from 2011 are different in style with less colour and tannins and are more red fruited than usual. The best wines are very good indeed and have the potential to age well for at least five years.

Colour

This wine, from the McIntyre, Robinson and Garden Vineyards, is bright cherry garnet in colour

Aroma

A vibrant nose of red cherry, wild strawberry a hint of Campari and savoury notes of cloves, star anise and nutmeg.

Palate

Elegant on the palate with bright fruit and crisp acidity the wine is long with a silky finish.

Food Matching

Enjoy with pulled pork and salsa verde on a corn tortilla.

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.
