Established in 1982 by Dr 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. They were amongst the very earliest grape prospectors to see the potential for making great Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the Mornington Peninsula.
These days they have been joined by their highly talented Master of Wine daughter Kate. Their philosophy in everything is to make the most of top-quality ingredients. Intensive, hands-on care in the three vineyards (one belonging to the family, one to a family friend and one to their viticulturalist) produces the best possible fruit for their wines. Land is organically dry farmed with minimal use of chemicals, Wild yeast ferments and minimal intervention winemaking, with a nod to traditional Burgundian techniques, allow their wines to express their site specificity, or terroir. Production is only around 5000 cases annually.
