2022 Moorooduc Estate Chardonnay


Battered and bruised, a year you had to be brave if you were a grapevine.

During the months of October and November in 2021, the weather was harsh, with a significant rainstorm and cold, windy, and wet conditions. This made for a challenging time for the vines, as the flowering and fruit set were affected. The damage extended beyond just pollination, with young leaves and canopies also experiencing harsh conditions, leading to lateral growth. It was a demanding year that required meticulous care in the vineyard.

Significantly reduced yields and smaller fruit have resulted in a depth Chardonnay, enhanced by an exceptional grape to skin ratio during production. This results in a wine that achieves a perfect harmony and refinement during its maturation in barrels.

Wild yeast fermentation in French oak (17% new) with a natural malolactic fermentation in barrel. Maturation in used oak barriques for 9 months, on the lees. Light fining and filtration.

Tasting Note: Lemon, orange, and cumquat with hints of white peach, oatcakes, and a flinty, salty minerality. On the palate, savour the textural blend of just ripe white peach and preserved lemon, complemented by mealy flinty notes. The finish leaves a long, silky texture, creating an exclusive and sophisticated taste sensation.

Origin: Mornington Peninsula, Australia
