Moorooduc Chardonnay, Mornington Peninsula, Australia
Pale gold with bright aromas of lemon and cumquat citrus, hints of white nectarine and buttered toast. On the palate the wine is tight and fresh, with more citrus flavours than stone fruit, a touch of spice and tangy pink grape-fruit acid on the finish.
Established in 1982 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 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 our wines. Wild yeast ferments and minimal intervention winemaking, with a nod to traditional Burgundian techniques.
