Beautiful aromatics here showing refined matchstick mineral bouquet with pear and lemon peel. The palate has tangerine and lemon characters. Such purity and precision with lovely vibrant acidity, well integrated into the citrus core of the wine. The intensity of flavour, rapier-like initially before expanding to a broader blade, is impressive. The finish is exceptionally long.

The beautiful and modern city of Melbourne sits at the top (north) end of Port Phillip, and the bay of Port Phillip has the Mornington Peninsula on its south eastern edge. The Mornington Peninsula is considered a cooler region, given its latitude so far south, at least by Australian standards. Kooyong Wines is a specialist Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producer which we think are the ideal varieties to be planted for what is Australia’s foremost cool climate maritime wine growing region. We are passionate about our biological viticultural practices and sensitive minimalist winemaking which produces site expressive wines of elegance, complexity and structure. The vineyard and winery were established in 1996 and is owned and operated by the Gjergja family. The winemaker is Glen Hayley. The majority of the 40 hectare site is planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with a small block of Pinot Gris.
