Kooyong is a domaine in the true sense of the word, the exclusively estate grown grapes never leave the property until well after bottling. The wines of Kooyong aim to manifest terroir, an integration of geology and soil, the mesoclime of individual parcels and the influence of Mornington's maritime clime. A culture of holistic husbandry in the vineyard and artisanal diligence throughout the vinification serves to articulate the uniqueness of Kooyong Pinot Noir, respectfully and without artifice.
A tally of clones are hand picked off fully mature vines, completely destemmed and vinified for up to three weeks in a mix of large oak foudres, cement vats and fermenters, the batches are left to self inoculate through wild and local yeasts. After completion of natural malolactic, components are filled to a selection of French oak barriques for nine months, followed by transfer to large oaken foudres for another ten months before assemblage.
TASTING NOTES
Bright garnet, maroon colour. A generous, open nose of dark berries and a touch of vanilla bean. The flavour spectrum ranges from strawberries, raspberries, and boysenberries, through to cinnamon and clove, tapenade and coffee, balanced by abundant ripe, round tannins. A thickness and richness of texture, the varietal character remains pure.

About the Kooyong Estate Winery
The Kooyong Vineyard and winery are located at Tuerong on the northern end of the Mornington Peninsula
Kooyong Estate was established on a gently undulating 93 hectare property neighbouring Devilbend Reserve, home to many native water birds. The Kooyong name means where the wild fowl gather. The vineyard and winery are part of the Gjergja family domain which also includes Port Phillip Estate. Compared with more southerly vineyards on the Mornington Peninsula, Kooyong experiences a warmer, drier climate, and the light, sandy clay soil is also less vigorous than the more typical rich loam of the region. The winemaker is Sandro Mosele. Kooyong Estate»
