The Moorooduc Pinot Noir
The Moorooduc Pinot Noir is a single vineyard wine from the McIntyre Vineyard, and comes from a careful selection of our three most successful pinot noir clones: two Dijon clones, 115 and 114, and one of the original pinot noir clones that came to Australia in the early 1900’s, MV6. The hand-picked fruit is destemmed and fermented on skins in open stainless steel vats, with a pre- and post-fermentation maceration. We plunge the cap by hand during the fermentation process and, after pressing, the new wine is transferred into oak barriques (25-30% new) for maturation and the malolactic conversion for 12-14 months before bottling.
This clonal selection offers us the greatest depth of flavour, savoury spice and structure, with all the layers of complexity, length and textural weight expected of our highest quality pinot noir.
