- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
This wine comes from the McIntyre home vineyard in Mornington Peninsula.
In a spectacular vintage like 2015, the fruit from this dry-grown block produces brilliant wines of intensity and structure. Vines planted as early as 1983 thriving in the near perfect conditions on the Peninsula during the 2015 grow season, with excellent results.
The McIntyre Vineyard Pinot Noir is a wine for quiet contemplation. It will cellar well just as it impresses on release. A wonderful wine from a top-flight producer.
What It Tastes Like
“From the home estate vineyard. From a great year. The power and the glory. In a nutshell. The spice, the fruit, the herbs, the flowers. The road of tannin. The snap of strawberries. This is a wine of balance, power and presence and that’s all you need to know.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

This single vineyard wine from our home vineyard in Derril Rd is further evidence of what our fine vineyard site and mature vines can produce in a really good year. For the first time we have included some wine from interesting clones grafted onto our old Cabernet vines (planted in 1983).

About the Producer
Richard and Jill McIntyre’s Moorooduc Estate is one of the gems of the Mornington Peninsula. Inspired by the great wines of Burgundy, they have developed their own reputation for producing extremely classy wines across the board.
The Mornington Peninsula has become a go-to destination for lovers of modern Australian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Mornington’s perfect climatic conditions for producing these varieties has seen it become, in only a relatively short time, one of the premier regions for these varieties in the country. The wines are beautiful. The best examples are wines which show a restrained power. Both intensity and elegance. It’s a region which will continue to blossom and mature for many years to come.
No variety captures the hearts and minds of the wine lover quite like Pinot Noir. It’s the unicorn of many a winemaker. Notoriously fickle to grow, this delicate red variety can deliver a kaleidoscope of flavours and aromas, from the bright and floral to the moody and mysterious and everything in between. The cooler regions of Australia are where Pinot Noir is most at home. Look to Tasmania and Victoria for the best examples, with some quality wines beginning to show from the Great Southern and from the cooler parts of NSW. Falling in love with Pinot Noir can be a life long affair, beware the charms of this most enchanting of grapes.
