Established in 1981, Richard and Jill McIntyre’s Moorooduc Estate is a small, family-run wine business with an enviable reputation for complex and food-friendly wines.

Moorooduc Estate offers some of the finest Mornington Peninsula wine and hand-crafted produce available for tasting and purchase at the cellar door.

Intensive, hands-on care in the vineyard with minimal use of chemicals, produces the best possible fruit for their wines. Wild yeast ferments, minimal intervention winemaking, with a nod to traditional Burgundian techniques, allow their wines to express site specificity or terroir.
Tasting Notes

96 Points James Halliday
From the oldest vines on the home McIntyre Vineyard, wild yeast barrel-fermented cloudy juice; Rick McIntyre was one of the early proponents of wild yeast fermentation with chardonnay. The bouquet has compelling touches of flinty reduction, the palate profiting from the drive engendered by the bouquet and that which has gone before.
