Wine Note

Moorooduc 'The Moorooduc McIntyre'

This single vineyard wine from our home vineyard in Derril Rd is further evidence of what our fine vineyard site and mature vines can produce in a really good year. It includes some wine from interesting clones grafted onto our old Cabernet vines (planted in 1983).
An elegant, complex wine with a nose of red and black cherry fruit, rose petals, some herbal notes wild sage and thyme and soy savouriness. On the palate, the wine shows a core of juicy red and dark cherry fruit balanced by savoury, earthy notes and some soy and star anise spice. Firm acid and tannin combine on a savoury finish with great length.
As a young wine, this is quite tight, but will open slowly with air. Match to roast duck with cherry sauce, or a slow braised lamb tagine.
