Moorooduc Estate Robinson Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

$60.00

Winery notes: “This wine is made from specially selected fruit from Hugh and Isabelle Robinson’s vineyard on the Old Moorooduc Road, celebrating the individual character of this special site. Pale gold with elegant aromas of Meyer lemon, aniseed, white nectarines and a hint of nutmeg spice. Fresh and tangy, with lemon fruit, peach skin and a touch of seaspray on the palate. Lovely length and texture on the finish.”

More Information

Dr Richard McIntyre (surgeon) and superlative winemaker is ably assisted by daughter, Kate McIntyre Master of Wine (MW) of the 341 MWs currently in the world, Kate is the third Australian woman. They were amongst the first to plant in the Mornington Peninsula in 1982. On their 12-acre vineyard they specialise in simple natural winemaking, working with small batches; everything has a natural yeast ferment and is lovingly hand-crafted, using low impact winemaking, with an attention to detail, that produces beautiful wines with balance and finesse. The fruit comes from four vineyards in the Moorooduc sub region, his own, the McIntyre vineyard, the leased Garden vineyard (as featured in Monty Don’s TV program Around the World in 80 Gardens) & neighbouring Robinson vineyard. A broad selection of clones, including a number of highly regarded Dijon clones (777, 115, 95 & 96), contribute to the complexity of the wines, as does whole bunch pressing and barrel fermentation for the white wines, and experimentation with whole bunch fermentation in the reds. The wines are multi faceted, complex and textural.
