  • This tastes like hedgerow fruit on a bright autumn morning (frosted rosehips and blackberries) and makes us think of quality red Burgundy. And yet you will never find a Burgundy at this price with such dry intensity surrounded by wonderful airy gracefulness. A terrific, complex Pinot Noir with a profoundness that suggests a far more expensive wine than it really is. Fantastic.

Press ReviewPress

92/100 - Blood plum, cinnamon sticks, red cherry, star anise and whole bunch spice, but throughout, has a kind of earthy character that gives it a little bump up in the appeals stakes. Medium bodied, cherry and exotic spices, a sweet orange juiciness, fine dusting of tannin, and a dry spiced finish of good length, cinched with a little bitterness. I like it.

Gary WalshWineFront, 14th March 2017

Bright pert, prim and pretty, with a rather lovely pale colour, this is a sensational wine and while other countries try to make wine like this no one gets close to this delicacy/juiciness ratio and the even better news is that it is already drinking! Mine’s a large one.

Winemaking

The Kooyong vineyard is located on the Mornington Peninsula at Tuerong, on Miocene sedimentary soils. The wines are made from domain grown, handpicked grapes and aim to manifest terroir: the integration of geology and soils with the macroclimate of the region, the mesoclimates of the various sites within the vineyard and the weather of the annual grape growing season. Cultural operations in the vineyard and practices in the winery endeavour to articulate these unique characteristics diligently, respectfully and without artifice. Kooyong Massale is an estate blend of Pinot Noir parcels from the Tuerong and Balnarring vineyards. The parcels in this wine represent 12.9 hectares. The fruit was fermented, without yeast inoculation, in open vats for 18 to 21 days, with a small proportion of whole bunches included. The malolactic conversion is also indigenous. The maturation period is 13 months in French oak, 12% new.
