The Wine.
This wine represents the pinnacle of style and quality of Moorooduc Estate ‘McIntyre Vineyard’ chardonnay. A result of a stringent fruit selection from our oldest chardonnay vines this wine expresses the unique characters of this vineyard site.

Pale gold with bright aromas of lemon and cumquat citrus, hints of white nectarine and buttered toast. On the palate the wine is tight and fresh, with more citrus flavours than stone fruit, a touch of spice and tangy pink grapefruit acid on the finish.

Deliciously long and lean as a young wine with a lot of restrained power, and will be a terrific match to pan-fried flathead and home cut chips, or crispy buttermilk fried chicken (free range of course).
