About This Wine
This wine represents the pinnacle of style and quality of Moorooduc Estate 'McIntyre Vineyard' Chardonnay. A result of a stringent fruit selection from our oldest chardonnay vines this wine expresses the unique characters of this vineyard site. Pale gold in colour with restrained, yet expressive nose of white peach, baked quince, pink grapefruit and sandalwood. Honey and salted hazelnuts and brazilnuts lurk in the background. Smooth and long on the palate with grapefruit rind, white peach and spicy notes - very vinous with savoury richness on the finish. A very complete wine.
Mornington Peninsula Wines
South of Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula grape growing region has a cool, maritime climate that is most known for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay production. Other varieties that have seen some success here include Pinot Gris and Tempranillo.
However, it does seem that Pinot Noir is their focus judging from the fact that The Mornington Peninsula International Pinot Noir Celebration is held once every two years. The event displays the region’s capabilities in making some of Australia’s finest Pinot Noir in front of local and international audiences.
