Description

The Moorooduc Pinot Gris On Skins is an intriguing ‘orange wine’ that spends 20 days fermenting on skins. As a result has a wonedrful watermelon pink in colour, with pink rose petals, violets, fennel and hints of pickled ginger, rhubarb and red plums on the nose. Tangy red berries and Moroccan spice on the palate, with a finish that is fresh and crunchy with just the right amount of tannin to clean the palate.  Certainly not everyone’s cup of tea but an intriguing wine and something a little different from the Mornington Peninsular.


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.
