Pale gold with rich, savoury aromas of cumquat, ripe white nectarine and layers of freshly baked baguette, gruyere cheese and roasted cashew nuts. On the palate the wine had a lovely density of flavour without being heavy – concentrated flavours of citrus rind, white stone fruits and crusty bread. A touch salty on the finish with lovely phenolic grip and long tangy citrus flavours.

Winery & Vintage Info

The 2021 vintage at Moorooduc Estate was blessed with a mild, gentle season with rain events throughout, resulting in excellent fruit set, very little vine stress and a paced ripening of fruit. The mild conditions highlighted the different microclimates in the Moorooduc vineyards, with vintage beginning at the normal time (around the 22nd February), but with little pressure on the winery, as different sites and varieties ripened slowly, extending harvest out to late March across our vineyards in the north of the peninsula. The result: a calm harvest, a composed winery team and bright, vivid wines with beautiful natural acidity, and fine phenolics, weaving structure tightly together.

Hand harvesting. Whole bunch pressing. 100% wild yeast fermentation in French oak barrels, 10% being new Natural malolactic fermentation (100%) in barrel 10 months in wood on lees with 1 racking prior to bottling. Light fining and filtration.
