Description

We were delighted to be offered a little library stock of older Pinot Gris from Moorooduc Estate.  This is such a wonderful wine, showing great development and compexity.  The exotic nose leads to a rich yet balanced palate that is dry and satisfying with a lovely balance of weight and texture. The balanced finish is long and tinged with citrus and green pear fruit.


Hand-harvested with whole bunch pressing, this delightful Pinot Gris is 100% barrel fermented in 2-3 year old French oak and then matured for 10 months on lees in the wood with 1 racking prior to bottling having been lightly fined and filtered. Established in 1982 by Richard and Jill McIntyre, Moorooduc is a small, family run wine business that has built an enviable reputation for complex and food friendly wines.



The philosophy here is to use top quality fruit that is produced by intensive, hands on work in the vineyard and minimal use of chemicals. The wines are then fermented using wild yeasts and minimal intervention to allow them to express the character of their individual sites. Moorooduc is rightly regarded as one of the leading lights in Mornington and one of the finest Pinot Noir producers in Australia.

Chardonnay

The De Bortoli Accomplice Chardonnay is a light straw colour with lifted aromas of ripe peach and nectarine complemented with a decent lick of vanilla oak. The palate is soft and creamy and exhibits ripe stone fruits. Integrated oak and a gentle acid nuance for a very long finish.

2017 Museum Release Marsanne, Tahbilk, Nagambie Lakes, Victoria

Marsanne

Tahbilk are a Carbon Neutral winery and legendary producers of Marsanne, not just in Australia but worldwide.  Their plantings of this beguiling grape variety are the world's largest single holding, some of which were planted in 1927 and rank as some of the oldest around.  The Museum Release Marsanne has an expressive nose of honeysuckle and hot buttered toast.  The palate is rich, nutty and honeyed yet has a vibrant citrus freshness on the finish.  This is a true 'terroir wine' which sings of the unique climate in this part of Victoria and shows wonderful varietal character.   This Marsanne is delicious now but will continue to develop in complexity up to 2026.
