Deep garnet in colour with lifted red and black cherry, generous aromas of wild sage, thyme and bay leaf with mushroom and soy sauce savouriness. On the palate, intense, velvety tannins balance dark cherry fruit, dark chocolate and rich earthy savoury notes.
Established in 1982 by Richard and Jill McIntyre, Moorooduc is a small, family run wine business that has built an enviable reputation for complex and food friendly wines.
The philosophy here is to use top quality fruit that is produced by intensive, hands on work in the vineyard and minimal use of chemicals. The wines are then fermented using wild yeasts and minimal intervention to allow them to express the character of their individual sites. Moorooduc is rightly regarded as one of the leading lights in Mornington and one of the finest Pinot Noir producers in Australia.
