The two things that impressed me at Moorooduc Estate was the wonderful cellar door manager and her knowledge and understanding of the wines of Moorooduc Estate and of the Mornington Peninsula region in general.
The wines and the consistently high quality across the board was the other thing that made for an enjoyable visit.
Though I did start my tasting with a Pinot Gris, it is the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape that are the focus of this winery. I tried three of the four Chardonnays and each was different, one was leaner, another more complex and another with more malo characteristics. One was not better than the other, they were all beautiful they just showcased different traits and characteristics. It was a similar case with the Pinot Noir wines all consistently good, all a little different.
It is for this reason if you are lover of fine wine then put Moorooduc Estate on you list as must see.
