Moorooduc Estate

Victoria | Mornington Peninsula

Our Review

Richard McIntyre has taken Moorooduc Estate to new heights, having completely mastered the difficult art of gaining maximum results from wild-yeast fermentation. Starting with the 2010 vintage, there was a complete revamp of grape sources and hence changes to the tiered structure of the releases. These changes were driven by the simple fact that the McIntyre vineyard could only yield 1500 cases, and by leasing additional Mornington Peninsula vineyards the business was able to expand to the 5000-6000 dozen produced annually. Daughter Kate McIntyre MW joined the business full-time after attaining her master of wine in 2010. The entry-point wines under the Devil Bend Creek label remain principally sourced from the Osborn Vineyard; the mid-priced Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are now sourced from multiple sites. The single-vineyard Robinson Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Garden Vineyard Pinot Noir and McIntyre Shiraz are priced a little below the ultimate ‘Ducs' (The Moorooduc McIntyre Chardonnay and Pinot Noir). Exports to the UK, the US and Hong Kong. -JAMES HALLIDAY
