2021 Robinson Chardonnay
Pale gold in colour with a fresh, bright nose of ripe lemon, white blossom and a touch of white peach. On the palate the wine is tangy, with freshly squeezed lemon and grapefruit juice, a sliver of white peach and a hint of toasty, fetta cheese salty savouriness. Long and vibrant on the finish.
A wonderful wine to match to a seafood platter – freshly shucked oysters, some prawns and some sashimi kingfish would be perfect!

The 2021 Vintage.
The 2021 vintage at Moorooduc Estate was blessed with a mild, gentle season with rain events throughout, resulting in excellent fruit set, very little vine stress and a paced ripening of fruit. The mild conditions highlighted the different microclimates in the Moorooduc vineyards, with vintage beginning at the normal time (around the 22nd February), but with little pressure on the winery, as different sites and varieties ripened slowly, extending harvest out to late March across our vineyards in the north of the peninsula. The result: a calm harvest, a composed winery team and bright, vivid wines with beautiful natural acidity, and fine phenolics, weaving structure tightly together.
Grapegrowing and Winemaking: Richard McIntyre and Jeremy Magyar, with assistance from Peninsula Vinecare in our vineyards and Kate McIntyre MW in the winery
Vineyards: 100% Robinson Vineyard fruit (Dijon clones 95 & 96)
