2017 Moorooduc The Moorooduc McIntyre Chardonnay
The McIntyre Vineyard Chardonnay is the flagship white wine in the Moorooduc range.
As with most of the other ‘Duc wines, this Chardonnay is whole bunch pressed and fermented with 100% natural yeasts giving it amazing texture and complexity. This combined with 100% naturally occurring malo whilst in barrel makes this one of the most intense iterations of Chardonnay on the Mornington Peninsula. James Halliday agreed, awarding it 96 points with the comment, "its special quality deriving entirely from the vineyard."
From the oldest vines on the McIntyre Vineyard, standard vinification. The 2017 Chardonnay brings brightness of the cool, slow vintage is magnificent in this wine, its special quality deriving entirely from the vineyard, Rick McIntyre not attempting to gild the lily.
