Moorooduc Estate

moorooduc-sign.jpgOne of the Peninsula's most important producers, Moorooduc Estate was established in 1982 by Richard and Jill McIntyre, who continue to make magnificent wines with daughter Kate McIntyre MW joining full-time a few years ago.  Geographically the first of the best-quality sites on the Peninsula, over many years Moorooduc has developed an enviable reputation for food (courtesy of Jill) and wine, at the forefront of developing a signature style for Peninsula Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Winemaking and viticulture is fairly traditional and relatively hands-off, allowing the fruit to express the site as purely as possible.  Moorooduc was one of the first to actively utilise and promote indigenous yeast fermentations and has always sought to produce wines full flavoured whilst being elegant and balanced.moorooduc-vines.jpg

The home (McIntyre) vineyard is planted mostly to Pinot Noir (UC Davis clones like G5V15 but also newer clones as MV6, 114, 115 and 777 grafted on to old rootstock) and Chardonnay (P58 and I10V5), with a little Shiraz.  Long-term viticulturalist Hugh Robinson's vineyard is the source for the 'Robinson' wines, whilst several wines are also produced from other vineyards.

The wines are at once traditional and satisfying whilst retaining a sense of vitality and freshness.  They are utterly delicious.
