About The Wine

This wine comes from the McIntyre home vineyard in Mornington Peninsula, and year after year the fruit from this dry-grown block produces brilliant wines of intensity and structure.

Great fruit weight, with opulent dark berries and a mulchy autumnal element that will deepen with age. There's power and firm tannins, and an overall feel of sheer quality.

The McIntyre Vineyard Pinot Noir is a wine for quiet contemplation not balcony drinking. It will cellar just as well it impresses on release - this is a wonderful wine from a top-flight producer.

About Moorooduc Estate

Richard and Jill McIntyre’s Moorooduc Estate is one of the gems of the Mornington Peninsula, and one of the region's pioneers, first planting grapes in 1983.

Inspired by the great wines of Burgundy, they have developed their own reputation for producing extremely classy wines across the board.

These are powerful and yet intricate wines that showcase their impeccable vineyard sources in a great light.

Additional Info

From The Producer

This single vineyard wine from our home vineyard in Derril Road is further evidence of what our fine vineyard site and mature vines can produce in a really good year. It includes some wine from interesting clones grafted onto our old cabernet vines (planted in 1983).

Deep ruby red with quite a closed nose, that opens slowly. Black and red cherries, with kirsch-like concentration, a touch of black raspberry and woody herbs like thyme and rosemary combine with some violet perfume lift. On the palate the wine is dark fruited, concentrated yet tangy, with black velvet tannin structure that coats all corners of the mouth. So much vibrancy and complexity, this wine is worth spending some time with as it opens up and reveals layers of flavour and terrific length..

The Real Review

"Very bright, deepish purple/red colour, impressive appearance. The bouquet is reserved yet sweet-fruited, with lots of sweet dark-cherry to raspberry nuances and a hint of 'forest floor', which all continue onto the palate, where it's fruit-sweet, ripe and almost opulent, yet the abundant tannins hold it all in check and provide serious structure, contributing to a very long carry. A rich, powerful, full-flavoured pinot with the potential to age well. A superb Aussie pinot." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)
