Richard McIntyre has taken Moorooduc Estate to new heights, having completely mastered the difficult art of gaining maximum results from wild yeast fermentations. While the Chardonnays remain the jewels in the crown, the Pinot Noirs are also very impressive. Viticulturist Hugh Robinson tends the vines with the same attention to detail he bestows on his own vineyard.  JAMES HALLIDAY, Australian Wine Companion

In our opinion the Derril Road vineyard is a very special site, deserving a wine of its own to express its unique character and the meticulous attention we give the vines. This wine represents the highest quality we are able to produce, regardless of cost and effort. It is only sourced from the best of the Derril Road fruit and by necessity is made in very limited quantities. This wine is called `The Moorooduc’ in recognition of it being the definitive Moorooduc Estate wine from the first vineyard planted in this part of the Mornington Peninsula.
