Kooyong

Website : www.portphillipestate.com.au/cms-kooyong-detail/index.phps

Based in the cool climate Mornington Peninsula, 80km south of Melbourne, winemaker Sandro Mosele has crafted a reputation for some of the finest representations of Australian Pinot and Chardonnay. The vineyard is split into five individual parcels with a variety of clones planted on some very different soils, and everything is done to enhance and express the natural characteristics of each parcel. The best section of each vineyard is reserved for the Single Vineyard wines. The best of the remaining parcels are then selected to make the Kooyong Estate Blend wines of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The remaining parcels are then blended together to produce the Massale Pinot Noir and the Clonale Chardonnay. At each level the wines represent fantastic value with an emphasis on vibrancy and elegance.

Other wines by this producer

  1. 2010 Faultline Chardonnay, Kooyong

    Bright lemon colour. Aromas of white peach and crunchy nectarine, potter’s clay and a hint of leesy funk. The palate is strident and powerful with some apricot fleshiness, the anchoring Faultline clay minerality and the textbook peach skin phenolic drive. Long and impressive.

  2. 2012 Massale Pinot Noir, Kooyong

    A pretty purplish crimson colour. The nose speaks of bright red fruits - raspberry and cherry, then violet florals, dried meadow herbs and hints of cherry pip, oak and botanical spices. The palate is attractively brambly with a core of red fruits, fresh acidity, fine, graphite-like tannins and a savoury edge which balances the fruit. This wine is approachable when young yet shows potential for further improvement with careful cellaring.

  3. 2011 Haven Pinot Noir, Kooyong

    Spicy, smokey, gamey aromas, leavened in the mouth with hints of anise and heather over succulent black cherry fruit. Well-structured, with richness and a warm, enveloping texture.

  4. 2011 Meres Pinot Noir, Kooyong

    Bright blood-maroon colour. Possibly a little more masculine than other recent releases of this wine, this has the pretty, aromatic red fruits of Meres but with an unusual depth and meaty complexity. Dusty herbs and focussed red fruits frame the palate and are carried by the site’s classic silkiness to length.

  5. 2011 Ferrous Pinot Noir, Kooyong

    A darker and more restrained nose than the Meres. Rather than a panoply of mixed fruits, this is more dense and complex, with smoked meats, blueberry, ironstone, black olive, and a touch of Chinese five spice. A singular style with an exciting range of flavours. Tannins are quite firm on the back palate at the moment, and will soften with age.

  6. 2012 Beurrot Pinot Gris, Kooyong

    Bright straw colour. Aromas of struck match accentuate an expressive nose of bomboniere almond, spun sugar, nougat, lychee and sweet fresh hay. The palate is rich yet dry and structured, with a viscous texture characteristic of the variety, moderate alcohol and fresh acidity. The residual sugar is relatively low for this style, at 3.7g/L and helps to emphasize the purity and line of this wine. Best enjoyed whilst youthful, this wine will build further richness over several years.
