Moorooduc Estate The Moorooduc Chardonnay 2005

Moorooduc Estate is a well know producer situated on the Mornington Peninsula. “The Moorooduc” is their top shelf label.

The wine opened to a low-medium intensity aroma of minerals, stones and smoke. Almost modern Chablis-like characters. But then it was served too cold, and its true character muffled. Typical peach and citrus chardonnay fragrances emerged with time. On the palate, medium to long length and citrus predominated. This wine struck me as a careful and well made rendition of Mornington Peninsula chardonnay. Good
